The kataba is a backless style of Japanese pull saw designed for deep cuts all the way through a material. It can be used with deep timber sections or sheet materials.
The Shogun OK265RCFLD is a fantastic Hassunme Kataba saw with special universal toothed blade making it capable of Rip, Cross and angle cuts in all types of timber including man made boards. You can rip down an 8′ x 4′ board with this saw.
The blade has 12tpi toothing with periodic pairs of rip teeth that act as rakers. The result is highly efficient waste clearance which helps keep the cut on track.
The finish is slightly more coarse than some of our Japanese saws, but with a combination of speed and accuracy it is a fantastic all rounder.
This is the folding version which can be locked in 2 cutting positions. It makes it more convenient for carrying, and storing when space is at a premium.
It can be paired with OK265 Cross Cut Saw, to handle all eventualities.
