Thank you all for the responses! I’ve been using Shark brand japanese pull saws up to this point. I’ve never used a western style joinery saw so I have no idea what to expect. What I do know is that this is the first time I have had access to a complete system of hand tool woodworking and I believe that I should commit to it completely. This is the reason I am looking for western style joinery saws. I’m thinking that the Veritas saws will be a good starting point. As my skills grow I will better understand what additional saws I will need.
Thanks again for all of the input!
