Dieter Schmid do a handy william greave “gents” dovetail saw (http://www.fine-tools.com/fein.htm)
It’s a little bit of effort to start the cut, but I’ve found it very effective once you get used to it, it’s 15tpi which is about the max that Paul recommends for sharpening yourself.

Personally, I don’t find gents saw handles that comfortable, but as I only use it to make numbers of cuts at a time, I put up with that.

I haven’t had to sharpen it myself yet as it still cuts well.
