Through dovetails or half blind?

Half blind it doesn't matter. Any reasonable bit would do - though I would choose a dovetail bit with a larger angle if you are doing pine or another soft wood.

The "longest" bit that I've seen is a 1" bit. I have heard of ones that are 2", but I haven't seen one and have no idea where you might find one.
