From the Manufacturer
Shark 10-2204 Dowel/Dovetail/Detail Saw is a very fine cutting saw with very narrow kerf. Designed for tight detailed cuts in all types of wood. Blade flexibility allows flush cutting of dowels and plugs. A great saw for those detail cuts that a regular saw can't handle. Recommended for all woodworkers.

Original review follows:
I initially bought this saw because it's advertised as being able to cut dowels or plugs flush with a surrounding surface. I tried this a few times, and was fairly disappointed - it cut easily enough, but scratched the surrounding surface badly! After more research, I learned that a true flush-cut saw does not have any "set" on the teeth (i.e. the teeth aren't bent out from the saw plate. Some set is important to prevent the saw plate from binding in deeper cuts, but it means that the teeth will scratch the surrounding surface if it's used as a flush cut saw).
I eventually bought a true flush cut saw from a popular Canadian woodworking/gardening retailer, and was amazed at how much difference that made. The teeth are truly flush with the saw plate, which means they won't scratch your workpiece when you flush cut a dowel or plug.
Not so on this Shark saw - the teeth do have set and will scratch your workpiece if used for flush cutting. Some significant time spent with a sharpening stone could theoretically remove this set, but the impulse-hardened teeth would make this more difficult, and it would be hard (for me at least) to justify that time and trouble when ready-to-use flush cut saws are available for only a few dollars more.
Second, this saw is advertised as "Ideal for dovetails..." While it may be strictly FUNCTIONAL for dovetails, it's far from ideal. The vast majority of saw cuts made when creating a dovetail are effectively rip cuts, which means you're cutting along or parallel to the grain of the wood. This type of cut is fastest and most efficient when done using a saw with rip style teeth. This Shark saw has teeth shaped for CROSSCUTS (perpendicular to the wood grain), so it's optimized for slicing through wood fibers in this orientation. It will still make rip cuts, but these cuts will be slower and potentially harder to control than they would be with a rip-specific saw. In other words, you could use this saw for an occasional dovetail, but again, it's definitely not "ideal".
The third descriptor in Amazon's title is "detail" saw. Finally an accurate description of an appropriate use for this saw! It does a fine job with small crosscuts and general trimming tasks, and leaves a fairly smooth surface. Nicer saws are available for these general small crosscutting tasks, but this is about as good as it gets for the price.
In summary: If this had been called a "Detail/fine crosscut saw", I would have given it a much higher rating. However, it's NOT a flush cutting or dovetail saw, and shouldn't be advertised as such. If you're looking for good saws for these specific tasks, look elsewhere.
These saws are: 1. sharp; 2. affordable; 3. easy to use (after a short learning curve).
These saws: 1. cut a thin kerf; 5. are very sharp; 6. allow you to do precision cutting.
And: they are very, very sharp (keep bandages with them - even though you've been warned - you'll have to find out for yourself).
I have moved ALL of my other hand saws to the back of the shop. These are a joy to use. I want to have each type (and have probably bought more than I have a need for). You will have to make a new miter box because these blades are too thin for any you have.
Some tips: 1. Don't pitch them in your toolbox or truck bed. These are precision tools and though they are quite strong, they are easily damaged. Use the blade guards that come with them. 2. Don't try to "muscle" them through a board. The old adage of "let the tool do the work" has never been truer. 3. Don't place the blade edge anywhere you don't want a mark left. I think I mentioned that they're very, very, very sharp.
(Since I don't know which review you might see first, I have left the same general review for each of these I own and added any specific thoughts for the individual saws.)
The flex of the blade took some getting use to. My usual ham-handed approach of letting the tool do the work does not apply here. Use requires careful attention. Once familiar, I was able to make nice clean cuts on smaller 1/4" thick stock.
They are extremely thin and sharp.Once you get used to cutting on the pull stroke, very high accuracy is possible with very little waste and cleaner cuts than I've ever seen from a hand saw.
The afforably replaceable blades are held firmly in the plastic handle by a large plastic screw that has worked perfectly so far.
Would I recommend this to a freind? I already have.
After taking the time of reading several reviews offered on this product I realized that it would be worth checking out for the twelve dollar price.
I can confirm from my own experience that this should be considered a disposable saw, as I'm writing this review there is a replacement blade 10-2204 that costs 'almost' exactly as the complete saw - that's indicative of how cheesy the black plastic handle is on this "Shark Saw". I find that to be quite silly.
This saw cut three thresholds very much to my satisfaction, although I noticed that it did become a bit more dull after four cuts(I screwed one up).
