Description

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 cocobolo 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.

WOOD magazine review

Sharp blade, sharp handle

Review Summary

The cocobolo handle is only slightly larger in diameter than a pencil, so it’s familiar and comfortable to hold and use. And the textured brass ferrule provides a great fingertip grip. The double-bevel blade was sharp out of the box and held its edge nicely.
