Karl Holtey, a renowned UK maker of hand planes, originally designed this purfling cutter for luthier Zachary Taylor. This version is made with brass and stainless steel parts machined by Veritas® Tools and a rosewood handle turned by Holtey himself.

Used like a marking gauge to define the sides of a groove or rabbet, it can be used with one blade or two, making it suitable for both guitar and violin purfling. Its innovative fence-handle connection has a locking 180° pivot so you can easily change the angle of the handle to suit your preferred grip or accommodate the tool's orientation.

One side of the fence is flat for straight and convex applications; the other is round for use on concave and waved edges. The blade-holding arm can adjust to make cuts up to 1-1/4" away from the fence.

The two spear-point blades cut a 3/32" wide groove when used with their bevels facing; spacing can be adjusted with user-made shims for grooves up to 3/16" wide. The O1 tool steel blades are hardened to Rc58-60. 8" long overall.

A limited edition of 100 tools.
