Nakaya B250 Kataba Style Japanese Saw
Kataba are backless saws with a stiff blade and fast-cutting teeth, well suited for making deep cuts. It cuts hardwoods, softwoods, particleboard, and plywood with speed, and leaves a surprisingly smooth finish for the coarseness of the pattern.
The replaceable 250mm Swedish Steel blade has impulse-hardened teeth for edge retention. It hooks into the handle with a friction fit; to remove it, just carefully strike the back of the saw against a flat surface. Installing the new blade is as simple; tap the hook until it is fully seated.
An excellent Japanese saw for coarse work.
