The Veritas® Fine-cut Dovetail Saw has 20 ripcut teeth per inch. The fine-cut model is a less aggressive cut, utilizing 20 TPI for stock under 1/2" thick. The teeth, set 0.003" per side, have a rake angle of 14° and an included angle of 60°. The saw has a spine molded from an advanced material incorporating stainless-steel powder for weight, glass fiber for stiffness, and a polymer resin binder. An over-molded blade and stainless-steel handle-mounting bolt create a solid one-piece blade/spine/mount assembly, and a single brass fastener secures the Bubinga handle. Made of high-carbon steel, the blade is 9-1/4" long and 0.020" thick, with a cut depth of about 1-9/16". This comfortable, well-balanced saw has a 14-1/4" overall length.

    Awesome saw

    As a beginner woodworker with a surprising obsession with handtools and traditional techniques, I've spent the past few months learning and practicing the basics: sharpening, cutting to a line, planing, etc. I practiced cutting dovetails almost daily for the past three months and failed each time. (I was using a Crown Gent's Saw, which I like, but it's not made for dovetailing.) Last week I finally succeeded, and to celebrate I treated myself to my first good-quality new tool: the Veritas Fine-Cut Dovetail saw. All I can say is, what a difference a good tool makes. This saw is perfectly balanced, feels great in the hand and is just a pleasure to use. It starts easy and tracks perfectly straight... truly does the work for you. Higher priced saws may perform marginally better, but I can't imagine needing more or being happier with the value. I've also used it for small tenons and it shines there as well. Buy and enjoy!

    Grandpa's Tools

    This tool must be popular because it was backordered and tool over a month to arrive.

    Very good saw

    I purchased this saw so I could have 2 saws as I do not sharpen saws with this small tpi and have to send them out. My other saw is a more expensive one and of the traditional style. I really like this saw. It is comfortable in hand and cuts very well. I used it to cut 120 tails in red oak drawer faces and maple sides and backs. It was a little jumpy at first but after some use it settled down and went to work. I like the saw enough that it may take over first chair for dovetail work.

    quality saw

    Nice saw. You can feel the quality. Angle of the handle a little awkward for me but I am getting used to it.

    Excellent Saw with a Very Natural Feel.

    Great saw cuts very effieceintly. The grip is very comfortable and natural feeling. Produces a very clean cut that is really smooth. I highly recomend this saw if your cutting dovetails. Very good quality for the price.

    excellent

    I've read a number of reviews and have to agree with them that this is one fine saw for roughly half the price of the ohters reviewed.
