Choosing a tenon saw...

I'm looking for a medium size (12-14", 10 tpi) tenon saw both in crosscut and tip tooth configuration. In my opinion this is the most versatile saw for joinery work. Four have caught my eye. All from the states. The smaller adria saw is available locally. Any opinions out there?

In the end I think I will go with lei nielson. Why? Not because I think they are better or worse than the others. I think all would be more than sufficient. Lei nielson offers a range, are a little cheaper, and at the upcoming woodshow will be easy to purchase. Though there is something romantic about the hand tooling used to make the others.
