Simply gorgeous to look at, hold and use, this sliding bevel is for discerning users that enjoy the feel of a quality tool in their hand. It has the same rosewood 28 x 19mm cross-sectional dimension handle, measuring approximately 145mm long and 3mm-thick brass plate caps protect the head and foot from accidental damage when in use.
The major change is the upgrade from a 1.0mm-thick tool steel blade to bespoke 3.0mm blade. The overall weight of the bevel increases from about 160g to 260g and in the hand it feels well weighted. Being solid brass it will never rust and may just tarnish with age if not well looked after, which would be a crime for a tool as beautiful as this. The brass blade naturally reduces friction when used with marking knives, pencils etc. and with a thicker surface to register against will provide improved accuracy.
Another extra small detail is the relief routed into the front and back of the handle making it easier to grip and more enjoyable to use.
A perfect gift to yourself or someone else.
