I purchased the saw to cut large dovetails in a 5/4 oak carcass and it worked great. I also used it for tenons on the same piece and again it worked just fine. I was a little concerned about the tote but found it to be comfortable in use. The saw starts easy in the oak and maple I am using and cuts to the line. I would give it five stars if I had used it more and had some idea about how long it will stay sharp and keep cutting the line.
Because the price was half of other fine saws and other good reviews, I decided to try this saw. I have quite large hands so I tried the saw in the store and found that it was a good fit. I cut a lot of my own tenons and small pieces by hand. This saw has a great feel, a thin blade and it is really sharp. I have been able to cut nice straight lines with it. You will need a different saw for ripping though.
Was in need of a pair of good tenon/carcass saws. Poured over all the brands and reviews. I took the unplugged workshop last year and Tom Caspar had the dovetail Veritas and said he really enjoyed it. I have a good Dozuki as well, but these outperform it in certain applications. If you are looking for a good quality western style saw, these ones are a very good quality saw at an unbeatable price. Went through hard maple like butter the first cut. Really satisfied.
