I finally been able to have fun with hand saws, mainly dovetail and carcass saws.
I am building a small entertainment center for my sister and doing dovetail joints all edges. Now that all the joints are half done, I have had enough practice to state a few things. Never to fight the saw and what a marvelous job this does when you realize this.
Just need to start the cut properly and the tool will do the rest of the job. Period.
I have tried a few saws and adopted the Lie-Nielsen saws, mainly for the grip. I had the chance to try other saws and found the grip not as a good fit as the Lie-Nielsen ones. Not to say that other saws don’t do a good job, but for my hands, it sees a better fit.
