Product Details

The kataba cross cut is extremely useful for making very deep cuts in materials such as hardwoods, softwoods, plywood and composites. Featuring triple bevel edged cross cut teeth at a pitch of 1.9mm this saw cuts very quickly and efficiently and slices through the wood fibres rather than tears them. Well balanced, this saw has a traditional rattan wrapped wooden handle for a firm non slip grip and improved comfort over long periods of use. This is an excellent choice as a general purpose saw. Kataba saws have slightly thicker blades than the dozuki saws making them stronger. This extra strength means the blade does not require the reinforcing spine that the dozuki saws do giving the kataba saws unrestricted cutting depth. The kataba has the perfect combination of fine, flexible blade and large cut depth making it an extremely versatile saw. These saws are capable of cutting solid hardwood and softwood, plywood and composite materials and will leave a clean finish to the cut surfaces. Due to the design of the saw, the kataba is the saw of choice for making deep or long cuts and can also be used for flush cutting and trimming.The Japanese put great emphasis on balance in all areas of their life and their woodworking tools are no exception. Look at the shape and form of a Japanese saw and the handle is in perfect visual balance with the blade. Hold the same saw in your hand and you realise that the balance of the tool is not purely cosmetic. This makes the tool easier and more efficient to use and has a profound effect on your work. Japanese handsaws have one stand out difference from their western counterparts; they cut on the pull stroke rather than the push stroke. Due to this single fundamental difference, Japanese saws have blades that are thinner, lighter and cut much smoother and faster. As the action of pulling the saw keeps the blade in tension through the cut, the blade does not need to be as thick or as heavy as a push saw which requires the extra bulk to withstand the compressive force of the cut keeping the blade, and the resultant cut, straight.

J Salisbury

This is the best kataba saw I have owned. I haven't used one with a screw to hold the blade before, but I needn't have worried: it is very secure and I didn't get the feeling that the thread was about to strip at all! The handle is neatly finished, the saw is well balanced and it is (of course) very, very sharp. Square saw cuts are very easy to make and, unless you are super-fussy, no finishing is required. A welcome addition to my workshop.
