Re: Lie Nielsen or Veritas Dovetail saw?

david weaver
Are any of the joinery saws LN? I don't have experience with the LN saws, but recall a lot of people - perhaps 8 years ago or so? - expressing dissatisfaction with the dovetail saw because it had zero rake.

If that was true, I wouldn't be surprised if it was changed.

Even if they did have zero rake at one point, only the tiniest bit of a tooth needs to be kissed at 5 degrees for the saw to cut like it's got 5 degrees of rake on the whole tooth.
