Does anyone have any info on this saw. Don’t see many reviews on it. Looks like a decent saw. I like the depth of cut. It’s a little deeper than traditional dovetail saw but not as deep as a carcass or tenon saw. If anyone could has this saw and could their thoughts or possibly suggest a different saw. I want to use it and just as go to saw around the shop. A few small dovetails few small tenons and dados. Don’t want an entire collection of saws just a few quality ones. Thx

Looks like a nice little saw, think I would go for the 20 tpi myself, find they make a cleaner cut. I have a Gramercy and the Veritas complete set, The Gramercy is so nice I find myself reluctant to use it! I find that for small D.T.s in hard wood finer teeth work better and many cases I’m use Japanese pull saws or a Zona.

I have their panel saws and they work well enough. I imagine the dovetail is just fine too.

Richard Maguire had nice things to say about it in a video I watched.

I’m sure it’s a solid saw. No frills it looks like but I’m sure the steel is good and it’ll do the business.
