I found a dozuki at Rockler made for dovetails and other detail work, around the $50 price point. You want something that cuts well? This thing’s like a dang lightsaber. Very aggressive bite starting the cut, but easy to control.

Like everyone mentioned, Japanese saws cut on the pull stroke, which might be weird if you’re not used to it. For me, I find that arrangement much easier to control.
