Like pencils, there never seems to be a striking knife at hand when you need it. We've produced this high-quality, well-priced knife so you can affordably leave several around your shop.

The knife has an A2 tool-steel blade with a 55° included angle at the tip. Ground to a keen edge at a 25° bevel angle, it slices wood fibers cleanly. It leaves an incised marking line that serves to guide a saw or chisel when starting a cut, helping to improve accuracy.

At less than 1/32" thick and 5/16" wide, the blade projects about 1-1/2" from the handle, making it particularly useful for the precise transfer work required for dovetail layouts. The dual bevel makes it equally comfortable for right- or left-hand use, or marking either side of a reference surface.

The nylon-reinforced ABS handle is contoured for a comfortable, controlled grip, with flats on the sides to provide tactile cues for blade orientation and finger placement. They also prevent the knife from rolling on a surface. Supplied with a guard to protect the tip in storage. 6-5/8" long overall.

Made in Canada. Excellent value in what should be a shop staple.
