Two sources I read and follow both addressed removing some of the set from a hand saw and they both said to lightly draw a file down each side once or twice. Lightly is key. Then try cutting to check your progress. You can make another pass if necessary. I would advise against putting it in a vise and crushing the set. The amount to remove to get the set right is very small and crushing in it in a vice can remove it all very quickly and unevenly. I fixed a rip saw that had a massive set on it and just two passes each side with a file got it done.

Good Luck.
