Veritas Dovetail Saws Review By: I.Ball


Manufacturer: Veritas Tools Inc.

Tool Type: Dovetail Saw

Model No: Fine-Tooth, Dovetail & Small Crosscut

This Veritas dovetail saws review covers the three types of Veritas dovetail saws made by Veritas Tools Inc. of Canada.

The three types of Veritas dovetail saw are:

     - Veritas fine-tooth dovetail saw
     - Veritas dovetail saw
     - Veritas small crosscut saw

I should point out here that the Veritas small crosscut saw is not referred to by Veritas as a dovetail saw, just as a small saw or small joinery saw. The reasoning behind this is because most dovetail work is carried out using rip cuts along the grain rather than crosscut cuts across the grain.

For the purpose of this review we will leave the small crosscut saw in the dovetail saw category.

These Veritas saws are all the same size with an indentical look other than the way the teeth are cut/set.

Each of the three saw types are fitted with a special composite black spine and a rich bubinga handle; bubinga is often referred to as African rosewood.

The handle design is traditionally referred to as an open handle design or a pistol grip handle design.

The handle is attached/secured using a single brass screw which runs from the base of the handle.

The composite spine is made of a mix of stainless-steel, glass, and polymer. The saw spine gives the blade the required tension and strength while also giving extra weight.

Each saw is presented in a cardboard box (usually brown) with a photo picture label on it. The box contains a leaflet about the tool.
