Rob Cosman's Professional Dovetail Saw, Ebony Handle (Seconds)
We make hundreds of dovetail saws and even though we are really good at it, sometimes things happen. Every now and then we create a cosmetic blemish that does not affect the proper functioning of the saw, but we cannot sell it as one of our high quality saw "Firsts"
This can be great news to you! Its a way to purchase a Rob Cosman Professional Dovetail saw at a discount.
We don't have many of these but when we do make a cosmetic mistake we put them up here for sale. The pictures on this page are representative of the typical flaws that make a saw a second.
If we are out of stock, just keep checking back, maybe there is a blemished saw in your future!!

My New Dovetail Saw
I was so excited to get my new saw from Rob. The saw has the ear marks of the name One Way and Robust. It has the easy of cut like cutting butter and the weight to zip thru cuts in heavy wood as a race car going 200 miles per hour. I had to go to the shop and try my new dovetail saw as soon as I receive, I purchased the 2nd of the tool line from Rob, I could not fine anything wrong with the fit and finish, it will be one of hand-me-down tools for the family in the future!! I will be purchasing another saw in near future ( small cross cut ). If you want to make your dovetails like a master woodworker this is the place to fine the tools, bar nun!
I am almost finished building the Cosman workbench, so I haven’t begun using my tools in earnest yet, but I have tuned, sharpened and inspected them per Mr. Cosman’s instructions. I can easily say that they are the best tools money can buy and they will be a pleasure to use for decades. As soon as my workbench is complete, it’s off to the races! I have been wood working for years, mostly building cedar canoes and small projects for use around the house. Tools and instructions from Mr. Cosman will take my projects up several levels. He left a message on my phone thanking me for the purchase, too! I felt like I was getting a call from a celebrity! Thank you, Mr. Cosman.
My dovetail saw
What to say? I bought a seconds saw. I got it and WOW!!!! What a great saw. I found two extremely small marks on spine. Super happy with saw, and glad I found Rob Cosman. Rob is a great guy, and his tools are amazing.
I have not cut any wood yet, but it fit my hand great. It will get broken with the bench I am going to build. Where you in 93 when I built my first box with handcut dovetails I did in purple heart wood. That was an education.
Smooth and quick cutting saw.
I still need to get my technique down a little better, because the saw tends to wander on me a little bit. Like if I’m trying to cut plumb and square across the edge of a board, my saw kerf may be perfectly square on the front face, but on the back it’s off by a little.
