Excellent saw for drawer box dovetails
When I purchase a saw it must be made of a spring steel that can be sharpened with a file.
The Crown gentleman’s tenon saw is great for it.
It is also excellent for fine cuts. This is due to the amount of the teeth per inch and saw set. Usually I use it to make dovetail joinery since it produces excellent cut surface and saw kerf isn’t large.
One recommendation I would make is to sharpen the saw since it comes not Super sharpened—this is understandable, because when it’s on a display at a store you don’t want to cut yourself.

Crown 8" Gents saw.
Great little saw. I'm a newbie at hand cut joinery, but this saw sure helped! This is my first hand cut dovetails project.

Great small project saw. Very handy for tight spots. In my case it was used to rebuild the worn drawer cross pieces of an old dresser.

Very pleased
I have purchased this saw for cutting some dovetails in pine and other soft woods. Though the teeth are pretty small, it cuts pretty well with a little bit of pressure and proper technique. The brass spine insures that the blade doesn't flex allowing for some tight clean joints.
