Although most dovetail saw teeth are set for cross-cutting, a rip saw tooth pattern is more efficient. These saws will usually have a higher number of teeth per inch (around 15 tpi) with teeth sharpened to favor ripping operations and set to leave a narrow kerf.
Unlike tenon saws, which invariably have closed handles, dovetail saws either fist grip or pistol grip handles.
