    I am looking to purchase a new dovetail/back saw. Just wondering if anyone has suggestions as to what is the best brand or style that won't force me to float a loan to get.

    Personally, I like the Japanese dozuki saws for this purpose. They cut on the pull stroke and have a very thin kerf. They are also relatively inexpensive and can be had for under $50.

    Lee Valley and Highland Woodworking are 2 places where they can be had.

    Jim Shupert of Shupert & Son's the Sharpening (99 Avondale Dr., Dayton, OH 45404, (937) 233-5144ā€ˇ) makes wonderful dovetail/back saws. Drew has one and he loves it. Furthermore, Jim doesn't charge that much more for a saw than you'd pay for a good commercial model. He starts with a "blue steel" saw blank, grinds teeth with profiles similar to a Japanese "dozuki" (crosscut, cuts on the pull stroke) and adds a comfortable hardwood handle of his own design. Pretty cool.

    With all good wishes,
    Nick
