Kanetyo Hardwood Saw Kataba I have worked on this saw quite a whale now, i wanted something as sharp as Japanese saw but also it had to stand up to hardwood that we work so much in the west. So Kanetyo in Sanjo, Niigata agreed to make one for JNS It is forged from White steel with special teeth for hard woods. Cuts very fast and make super smooth cut.
It is professional Japanese saw so it can be sharpened up again if you have skills. But like with all Japanese knives and tools it have top be used with care !!
But when you learn to use it you will never go back to your dull Western Saw !!!
