This versatile knife has an oval handle for a comfortable fit and fine grooves for a good grip in your hand. Designed to use standard disposable scalpel blades, it comes with 12 razor-sharp high-carbon blades (four of each style shown) that are easy to hone for repeated use. Featuring a solid brass collet on an anodized aluminium body, blade change is quick and easy and blade orientation is always ideal, in line with the major axis of the body. The magnetic end cap is removable to store up to six blades in the handle and keeps blades from rattling around inside. Although offered as a carver's knife for fine detail work, it is equally effective as a multi-purpose workshop knife. About 150mm long. It has both the value and style you expect of a Veritas product. Made in Canada.

Superb toolThis is made to the usual high Veritas standards. The blade holder grips well, and the knife is well-balanced, and a pleasure to use.
