The knife has an A2 tool-steel blade, ground to a point with a 25° bevel. It leaves a clearly incised line that serves to guide a saw or chisel when starting a cut, helping to improve accuracy. At 0.8mm thick and 8mm wide, the blade projects about 38mm from the handle. It is particularly useful for the precise transfer, as for dovetail layouts. The dual bevel means it is equally suitable for right or left-hand use. The contoured, nylon-reinforced ABS handle makes for a comfortable, controlled grip. Flats on the sides prevent the knife from rolling on a surface. Supplied with a guard to protect the tip in storage. 170mm long overall. Made in Canada

Great for amateur and professional alikeThis is an excellent tool, well made and razor sharp. The slightly longer and narrower blade does indeed enable better access when marking out dovetails and other fine work such as modelling. Good price too. Highly recommended!

Great item for professional and amateur alikeThis is an excellent tool, well manufactured, nicely balanced and razor sharp. The longer than normal blade, coupled with its low profile, does indeed allow better access for dovetails and other fine work. Great price too. Highly recommended!
