For those looking to take their precision in the shop up a step, a precision straightedge is a versatile and dependable tool against which everything else can be judged.
We have stocked Matsui's squares for many years, and now are very happy to offer these beautiful straightedges as well.
This example uses two bevels that meet to give an extremely fine edge to use as a reference. It has had a notch machined in it to allow it to bridge over a finely protruding plane blade when tuning Japanese planes.
This tool ships in a protective sleeve. For longest life we recommend it be kept in rust proof paper and ideally be given a light coat of camellia oil occasionally to protect from rust.
It also must not be dropped. We will take our customary care in shipping these items, and if it arrives to you not in the condition it leaves us, we will remedy it.
Overall Length: 400mm
Distance of Notch from End: 275mm
