Hock Tools Violin Knife

About This Item

Razor sharp blades for building and repair
Perfect for guitar work! High carbon steel with a wicked-sharp edge, these blades are needed in any instrument shop.

Strong and rigid
Violin knives don't flex like a hobby knife. Strong enough for heavy work, they'll cut a bridge plate or put a bevel on a repair cleat. Use the wide blade like a spokeshave for carving a guitar neck. Use any of the three sizes to whittle a guitar brace. When used with a straightedge, they slice perfectly thin wooden shims.

These genuine Hock Tools blades are hardened and tempered to hold their edge, and are easily resharpened. Their edges are beveled on both sides, for right- or left-hand use. Use them as-is, or make yourself a wooden handle the way traditional violin makers do.
