Japanese woodworking saws cut on the pull stroke, as opposed to "Western" ones that cut when you push. This allows the blade to be made extremely thin, but also makes it easier to accidentally bend it by pushing too much!

A "Ryoba" has two cutting sides, one with hardened crosscutting teeth and one with simple larger teeth for quick cuts along the grain.
Our model seems to be compatible with both Bauhaus and Hornbach blades in case a replacement is needed.

- Kataba: similar to Dozuki, but no back
