Im gonaa buy a Japanese pull saw fer making finger/dovetail joints.
I'll be using them on 1/2" thk baltic birch plywood to make kitchen drawer
boxes. I'll start w/ finger joints and proceed to dovetails as I improve. Which
douzuki saw do you ppl recommend? I've been eying this one:

I was gonna order a Z saw, but one of the reviewers strongly
recommended a Gyokucho over a Z saw.
what kind of steel is it do you know
bought a really cheap dovetail and have to keep it wrapped in plastic
to prevent rust
left it out in the shop after first use for a week and it was showing

3 mistakes as I see it (strictly my opinions, not based on deep research or decades/scores of experience...
1. Buying a cheap saw: what did you expect?
2. Wrapping in plastic: needs to breathe so moisture has an opportunity to escape. Covering in plastic is altogether different
3. Leaving in the "shop": Should be in a drawer with either a desiccant or dehumidifier
Otherwise, good job, well done :)
Many years ago, I bought a top of the line, Spear & Jackson,
Sheffield made, brass backed tenon saw. To protect the teeth during a move,
I used a plastic guard, slipped over them. A few months later I noticed
a line of corrosion where the plastic was in contact with the steel. I
think that not all plastics are completely neutral.
