Veritas Workshop Striking Knife

by Veritas

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.

FREE UK Delivery on all orders over £30 within the UK Mainland, Northern Ireland, Highlands & Islands, for a limited time only*. Only £5.95 on orders under £30.

Order before 2pm and we'll aim to despatch your order the same day, Monday to Friday. Please allow 1 to 2 working days for delivery.

Excellent quality - just a pity about the plastic handle

As always with Veritas, this tool does what it should do brilliantly. The double bevel means that in scribing work it can always be used with the flat side against the reference surface, whether left or right. Similarly, when striking shoulder lines, the flat side of the cut can always be on the shoulder with the bevel side in the waste for a lovely, crisp joint.
My only complaint: I'm an old school chippie and I love the feel of a wooden handle in my hand (not to say the look of it in the tool rack)!

Only used it a couple of times however it does what it as with all Veritas tools. ie Well designed and comfortable to use.
