Japanese Saws and Hacksaws
Cremona Tools offers a selected variety of saws and hacksaws for every need of cutting wood. In the catalog you will find Japanese saws, hacksaws, arches to contour and peghole saws.
The Japanese saws are saws cutting on the pull stroke: the cut takes place then with the blade in tension rather than compression and this allows to have thinner blades.
They differ mainly due to the position of the teeth and the presence or absence of a stiffening rib on the non cutting edge.
Japanese Saw Kataba
Kataba is a type of saw with teeth along only one edge. It is suitable for deep cuts, used for different types of processing and it is generally cheaper.
Ryoba Japanese saw
The particularity of the Ryoba saws are the two cutting edges. One cutting edge allows accurate and fast rip cutting, while teeth on the other side are designed for crosscutting.
Dozuki Japanese saw
The Dozuki blade is generally thinner than the other two Japanese saws and for this it needs a rigid back to ensure the right pressure on the blade and therefore allow a precise cut. Suitable for cutting softer woods.
