I have one of the #68 Disston saws Joe pictures above, and I’ve used it for making dovetail cuts in very thin stock before without issue (my 10” dovetail saw has a rather agressive filing to it). Either is what you get used to, I think.

That said, Airframer did a great job on that mod. Also, there are pistol grip and handled dovetail saws on the used (boot sale, I think is the expression?) market to be had if you keep an eye out.

Good luck!
