Have you looked at dovetail saws on ebay? You’ll have to do some work on that, but that should be an option. Another possibility is the Crown gent’s saw that they sell at Woodcraft for around 25-30 bucks. I personally don’t like gent’s saws too much and am working on making a new pistol type handle for mine, but the saw itself cuts dovetails quite well. A third possibility is to get a Zona razor saw, which also has a gent’s saw type handle. They cut incredibly cleanly and are dirt cheap.

I have the aforementioned Veritas dovetail saw, and it’s well worth the 65-70 bucks that Lee Valley charges. Go for the 14 PPI version, not the 22. That one only seems to work well in stock under 1/2”.
