Is this what you have?

Chris Schwarz actually recommends that saw as a good cheap option. Ripping a 24” board should be well within its capabilities. Ripping with a hand saw is not the most enjoyable activity though. I have one of these that I use for ripping:

It’s a ryoba style pullsaw. The teeth on one side are coarser and filed rip and the teeth on the other side are finer and intended for crosscutting. It works pretty well for knocking lumber down roughly to length and width and then I use planes to true them up.
