Introducing our dedicated Half-Blind Dovetail Saw, inspired by the requirements of woodworking educator and scholar, Don Williams. This specialized saw serves as the "baby brother" to our .018-plate dovetail saw, offering a more delicate touch for precise cuts in thin stock without the risk of blowouts. Here are the key specifications:

Plate Thickness & Filing: Crafted with a .015 thick Swedish Spring Steel plate, meticulously filed at 16 teeth per inch (ppi) in a rip configuration along a 10-inch toothline. This filing pattern is specifically designed for finesse and excels in making through-cuts in delicate, thin stock ranging from 1/4 to predominantly 2/4, with occasional use up to 3/4. Additionally, it performs exceptionally well in creating half-blind dovetails in 3/4 up through 6/4 stock.

Depth Under the Back: The saw boasts a generous depth under the back, measuring 1 1/2 inches at the heel and tapering down to 1 3/8 inches at the toe. This depth provides ample blade support for the task at hand while maintaining the necessary rigidity and control throughout each cut.

Combined Set: With a precise, clean, and crisp hammer-set, the resulting kerf width is kept to a mere .0225 inches. This whisper-thin kerf ensures minimal material removal and a delicate, refined finish—perfect for intricate and delicate woodworking projects.

Our dedicated Half-Blind Dovetail Saw offers a harmonious blend of finesse, control, and precision. Its specialized design allows you to achieve flawless, blowout-free cuts in thin stock, while excelling at creating beautiful half-blind dovetail joints. Elevate your craftsmanship with this exceptional tool that is tailored to meet the demands of your most delicate woodworking tasks.
