Kataba saws have a single cross-cutting edge with no back or metal spine allowing you to make deeper cuts than Dozukis or Ryobas. These tend to be the third Japanese saw woodworkers acquire, a Dozuki and a Ryoba.
Every saw blade is individually checked after production. The saw handle in these saws is optimised for greater stability and control. Furthermore, even higher quality steel is used to manufacture these saws. The manufacturer of these saws with replaceable blades is well-known in the Japanese market for its extraordinary quality.
