Veritas Vs. Dozuki “Z” Saw, a comparative review
I have had the dozuki “Z” saw for almost a year, and I have used it for general cross cutting as well as for cutting dovetails. While I consider myself to be reasonably practiced with the “Z” saw, I find that I have a much easier time sawing plumb and square with the Veritas dovetail saw than the “Z” saw, whether on crosscuts or rip cuts. I think it has a lot to do with hand position; my hand is in a more natural and “neutral” position with the Veritas saw, so I am not torquing my wrist to make the cut. Even though I only have a month worth of time with the Veritas saw, I already get much better results (plumb and square according to my Starrett square with Veritas versus a few degrees off requiring chisel correction with the “Z” saw.) This is just my comparative experience; your results may vary. It’s also worth noting that the Veritas 14 TPI saw does a pretty good job of cross cutting even though it’s filed rip while the “Z” saw is good at cross cutting but much slower at rip cutting. As in, the “Z” saw takes about 3-4 times as many strokes to get to the same depth when rip cutting and about 2/3 as many strokes cross cutting compared to the Veritas with similar surface finish and comparable saw kerf both ways.
Bought this to get good at dovetails. This saw feels perfect in my hand and cuts easy and true. Nice weight to the saw, feels like a real quality tool. Very happy with the purchase. For the money, I doubt you could find a better saw.
Great little saw
It may be possible to find a better saw than this one, but you'd probably have to pay a lot more, and the difference would be very minor. It's a great little saw, and well worth the money.
Great Dovetail Saw
What a great saw. Wonderful performance and a great feel. Much easier to keep on line compared to what I was using before for dovetails.
Excellent quality and function.
What a difference the right tool makes. Just bought it yesterday, and already this little saw is indespensible. In case you're wondering, the black stiffiner on the saw is NOT plastic, but rather cast metal. I was thrown by this in the pictures and it initially made the saw look suspect. I should have known better give Veritas reputation. This saw does exactly what it's supposed to do. Cuts straight. Enough said, really. Just an excellent saw and great value for the price.
Works perfect and great quality.
Great little saw
I'm just starting to enter the world of dovetails & needed a good above average entry level donvetail saw. I've had a few of them in my hand but none as comfortable & a pleasure to use such as this one. Very happy with the saw & can't wait to make my first project with it.

Great Product, cuts well @ 14 tpi.
Best Dovetail saw ever!
This is the best dovetail saw period.
Veritas standerd Dovetail Saw
I have two other dove tail saws and this puts both to shame. Cuts smother and faster
Love this Saw
Just getting into hand cutting dovetails and this saw is a joy to use. It works much better than the Japanese Dozuki saw that I was using. The quality and value are outstanding. I tested using the 14 tpi vs the 20 tpi - I liked the easier cut of the 14 tpi. The cut is definitely clean enough for any dovetail.
