The Veritas saws combine the best characteristics of the classic fine joinery saw with those of state-of-the-art materials and construction methods. The tooth pattern on the thin high-carbon steel blade provides a good balance between cutting action and surface finish. The pistol-grip design of the wooden handle makes it intuitive to hold the saw such that the index finger rests on the stainless-steel/glass/polymer composite spine, which provides strength and rigidity. This set includes 2 standard and fine tooth dovetail saws and a small crosscut saw.

For fine joinery and small projects that require cutting across the grain (e.g., cutting the shoulders of a tenon), the small crosscut saw is ideal. The teeth on the crosscut saw are filed with an alternating bevel angle, so they act as small knives to sever the wood fibers, leaving a smooth, accurate cut with almost no tear-out.

  • Small Crosscut: The small crosscut saw has 16 tpi, filed with a 15 degree rake and a 60 degree included angle. Set is the same (0.003 in. per side). The main difference with these teeth is that they are not filed directly across the blade (90 degrees), but at an alternating 75 degree angle to the blade, which creates a 15 degree bevel on each tooth. Unlike rip teeth that are a series of little chisels, crosscut teeth are a series of little knives.
