Veritas now has 2 Gents saws for $49 each, one rip, one crosscut…in addition to their much-acclaimed Dovetail saw ($65) and carcass saws ($69).
So here’s my question…Is there anyone, who given the option and only a $15 price difference, who would actually choose the straight-handled gents saw over the tradtional handled dovetail saw?
I could see someone choosing the $20 Crown gents saw over a traditional dovetail saw based only on price, but does anyone actually prefer the straight handle?
Is there any reason to buy both?
