I have the Veritas saws as well and they have performed well. When I took Paul’s 9-day class in NY each of his benches was equipped with the Veritas saws. You can do quality work with these. That being said I have recently acquired the Dozuki ‘Z’ saw, and that saw my friends is the best I’ve used for cutting dovetails. It is incredibly sharp and remains so; it has a very thin kerf and once you have used it a bit I think you will love it. Also very affordable on Amazon.
