    We are friends on Facebook, he is a great guy and a fine craftsman. His business is really taking off so wait times will only get longer.

    Like Mike said he's a good guy and good craftsman. As far as the wood used for the handle goes, it's a mater of personal tastes. Nothing more.

    Just personal preference. I've turned a few things using bubinga and like how it took a finish.

    Wow, wish I'd found out about this before I purchased my Veritas saws.

    $9 more than the Veritas for a hand-made saw seems like a steal to me. Other guys want $250 for a small dovetail saw.

    I can’t comment on the other saws under discussion, but I have several of the Veritas saws and have no regrets about purchasing any of them. They’re outstanding saws for a great price in their own right. I was lucky that all their characteristics “fit” and worked for me.

    Small hand saws aren’t universal. Their usability and performance are impacted by lots of factors you may not appreciate until you own or use a few different saws. Some are inherent in the saw design and construction. Some are personal preference or comfort.

    Look forward to hearing how you like these saws and seeing some of the work you produce with them...oh yeah, also need pictures of the new tool!
