3. The extra-fine saw (also 150mm) from LV. Note the blade thickness (0,19 mm) and the full-length back. I have included a shot of a cut, with a piece of sewing cotton laid in the cut for comparison. In support of LVís claims, the fourth shot shows the depth achieved in a reasonably hard wood, with little effort.
4. The ryoba, with its two edges. I bought a cheaper model first, and had reason to regret it.
5. The angle guide, used with a pistol-grip backless blade. This model can be set for compound mitre cuts (there is another model that does mitres only). Not as good as Tomís for what he does, but very versatile. The guide has a fence underneath, and is held against the wood while sawing. Can even be set for (very limited) ripping, but the saw is more at home cross-cutting. If I ever work on a project abroad again, this is the saw that is coming with me.
6. While you are about it, do yourself a favour and get one of these little kanna planes. Need a bit of work on the sole, but the performance is startling.

Thanks Biagio.
I've never seen one of those angle guides before. I'm still waiting for them to ship my saws. I hope they'll be good.
I'll try and update everyone on my thoughts once I have them in my hot hands and tried them out.

Biagio Six Sigma Blue Belt. Great productivity enhancer. Samuel Johnson said that if a man knows he is going to be hanged on the morrow, it concentrates his mind wonderfully.

If you catch it quick enough before your time runs out on going back to edit you can open the file and then rotate and save it again as the rotated version and switch that one with the original. I can still do it but unless the orientation really makes it hard to figure out what's going on I don't as it is time consuming and there is a chance with that many photos I could screw something up.

For some reason, every time I pick up a hand saw, my instinct is always to start the cut pulling towards me, so after some reading, I decided that this would be a good way to go.
I've only ever had a cheap little saw and a hack saw. I got rid of the old regular saw ages ago, and I got a relatively inexpensive back saw, but it's not my favourite.

I still need to get a coping or fret saw (can't decide which), but I'm looking forward to getting into it. I have a good amount of small stock left over from doing the buffet, so I have plenty of practice pieces
