I recently purchased a Rob Cosman dovetail saw at my local Woodcraft, I had the choice between an English import, Lee valley and the Cosman saws. The Lee valley was very lightweight and didn’t seem balanced. The English import was heavier than the Lee Valley and had the 2 tooth pattern ( a start zone is 20 tpi at tip followed by 15 tpi the remaining length) nice saw. The Cosman Saw was as heavy but very well balanced – A real cut above the other saws I had seen. The Cosman also has the 2 tooth pattern, it makes starting cleaner than drawing the saw back to establish the cut. I have cut dovetails with it since purchased it. Its nice, easy on the hand and arm and cuts beautifully. I recommend it for had cut joinery.
