Dovetail Saws & Carcass Saws

Dovetail, Carcass and Gent Saws are all types of backsaws, smaller than Tenon Saws, designed for specific joinery tasks. We offer a variety of these joinery saws with classic pistol grip handles or straight handles and for a range of budgets. Dovetail Saws are generally designed with rip tooth sets for cutting along the grain as when cutting dovetail pins. Carcass Saws with cross-cut sets perform other general joinery work requiring cuts across the grain. Gent saws are typically shorter and smaller, available with cross-cut or rip sets for small-scale model work and fine dovetail joinery. Hand cutting dovetails is probably the most feared and revered among joinery tasks, many convinced there's no time to master the skill. Dovetails joints can be traced back to Egyptian times, so learning to cut dovetails by hand these days should be a cinch. Watch Dovetail a Drawer (220446) with Master Cabinetmaker Frank Klausz as he demonstrates cutting dovetails by hand for speed and accuracy in a production environment. Yes, even in this modern era, pros like Frank Klausz still cut dovetails by hand with a dovetail saw!
