Item RB6 - Boxwood and Brass Graduated Bevel.
of the more interesting bevel squares that I’ve seen in some time, this one
seems to be of European origin and has server unusual features. The handle is
boxwood with brass trim, and is graduated on the handle from 0 to 7 inches. The
inches are ordinary English measure, so I think that the bevel is British made.
The brass blade is fixed in the English manner with a slotted screw. But the
blade is also graduated from 7 out to 12 inches. Interestingly the handle and
blade gradations share the same style of embellishing lines and graduation lines
( 1/8ths). The numbers, however, appear to be stamped on the blade with 3/16”
high characters, while those on the handle appear to be hand carved with about
5/16” height. The boxwood handle has staining, but the graduations are easily
readable. Unique and easily Good.
