This elegant hand-crafted knife is not only useful for general layout work; the 0.029" thick blade reaches into tight recesses, ideal for transferring the profile of narrow dovetail pins.
Available with an O1 tool steel blade, hardened to Rc59-60 for durability, or in a carbide version that is more rigid and holds its edge longer for less frequent sharpening (diamond abrasive required).
Both blade types are 5/16" wide by 1 7/16" long, and have a 44° spear-point tip with a 40° bevel on one face and a flat face on the reverse for flush registration against a reference surface.
For right- or left-hand use, the knife marks in either direction. Turned hardwood handle.
Three grooves in the machined bronze ferrule provide tactile cues for finger placement and improve grip for fine control.
Just over 7" long overall.
Made in USA.
