Package deal comprises the Veritas Dovetail Saw and the Veritas Fine-Tooth Dovetail Saw.
Veritas Dovetail Saw
This innovative saw features a spine that is permanently moulded onto the back of its blade. The spine imparts just the right amount of weight to the blade to carry the saw effortlessly into the cut. When you're performing a task like cutting dovetails, accuracy is paramount. With this saw's weight and design, full control is assured. The polished hardwood handle is shaped to fit the hand comfortably and not just to look pretty, which it also does. In fact the handle is very reminiscent of the rear tote on a bench plane and this theme is carried on in the steel rod that passes right through the handle and the brass nut used to attach the handle to the rod. A mortice and tenon joint between handle and back ensures a good solid and secure fixing between the two parts. The blade is Japanese high carbon steel, 230mm (9") long by 40mm (1.1/2") deep, with razor sharp 14tpi teeth filed with a 14° rake angle, the overall weight is 360g (12.7oz).
