Kataba Saws
Due to their stronger blades, the backless Kataba saws are very robust and make deep, long or flush cuts in solid or glued wood or composite material. Like all Japanese saws, Kataba saws work on the pull stroke and are therefore especially energy-efficient. Kataba are offered in different blade lengths and tooth spacing for versatile use in cabinetmaking and carpentry.
Features of an original DICTUM Japanese saw - made in Japan!
Rust protection and reduced friction
thanks to cutting edge surface plating technology (inexpensive saws are usually only lacquered, leading to increased friction in the saw kerf!)
Backlash-free saw blade guidance
for excellent cutting precision
Stainless steel blade holder
rust protection, no varnish and increased bending stiffness of the back of the blade
Individually impulse-hardened tooth tips
for equal hardness of all teeth and thus long-lasting sharpness
Perfect deburring of the teeth
for reduced sawing forces
Uniform set of saw teeth and absolutely straight teeth
for drift-free sawing.
