The graduations on these rules are printed in white on a black background making them very clear and easy to read. One edge features imperial graduations in 1/32nds, 1/64ths and 1/16ths. The opposite edge has metric graduations in 0.5mm and millimetres. Made from stainless steel they will not rust, and the contrast between the black and white removes a lot of guess work from marking out.

Not for accurate measuring.As with other reviewer attracted by possibility of easier reading of the scales and the low price I bought all three.Not for the first time I have recieved rules that may have accurate scales but are not accurately zeroed. The worst is the six inch rule which arguably should be the most precise, yet is out by 0.5 mm.

A rule with numbers that wear off!I bought the 600 mm version, attracted by the low price and what appeared to be a good design. However, after only a few days the numbers started to wear off which is not too useful Will go for the traditional stainless rule next time as this one will be binned soon.!
