I do 95% of my handsaw with with a 2 sided dozuki and a Suizan crosscut that has a back on it. It depends on what you like… Lotta guys don’t like pull saws, but I find them easier to use for most things.

I think this is the dozuki I own.

And, this is the backed crosscut saw I use. I guess they call it a dovetail saw.

I have a couple of old Disstons and a few old Craftsmans (made by Disston) that I inherited from Pops and Granddad. I very, very rarely pull them out.

I’ve found a lot of quality ‘vintage’ tools on eBay… Mostly old planes. But, i’ve seena lot of saws and such there as well.
