This is a well made, low cost handsaw that I use for cutting joinery. I think it was a little over $30 at Woodcraft. The handle is beech and the top is brass, the blade is rigid and very sharp. I am new to the world of handsaws other than the ripsaws sold at the big box stores so this was a big step up for me. I think this brand is worth looking into for future purchases.

Been looking for a dovetail saw but not willing to go three figures for a stamped blade! This may just fit the bill, thanks for posting.

Thanks for the post. I have been looking at some saws and couldn’t decide on what to buy. I want to try my hand at hand cut dovetails and was looking at the dozuki and the ryobi saws. I also looked at the Gent’s saw. This might help me decide.
