Veritas saws are some of the best quality and value you can get. The Veritas rip and dovetail saws cut along the grain of the wood. These are ideal for fine joiner projects. The Carcass saw is for cutting joints in Drawer runners, dividers and stretchers. The gents saws are modeled after the older Gentleman's toolkits for lighter work. All the saws are made from high carbon steel blades with a stainless-steel/glass/polymer composite spine.
