The Starrett rules we carry have a no-glare satin chrome finish that provides better rust resistance than polished steel. Each rule end is accurately ground to allow reading from either end. Graduations are machine divided (not photo engraved) for uniformity of line width and depth.
One of the most useful features of a flexible rule is that you can press it against a surface while holding one end in your hand. These 12.7mm (1/2") wide by 0.4mm (1/64") thick rules are graduated in millimetres and half-millimetres on one face and half-millimetres on the other.
