This tool did a great job for me removing a bridge from my Martin D-28.

Good sturdy knife, much better than anything you can find in paint supplies.

Works fine

Good tool. Its the exactly the same as the tool you would buy in an art supply store for painting but that being said, this is sold for a good price and its worth having a couple of these in your tool set.

Great little tool

I used this knife in a bridge removal, its a nice compliment to larger knives. The offset is a great feature.

A couple of these accompany the Martin style bridge knife nicely, and you can't argue with the price. Good finish on the blade and the right amount of flex.

Like the offset; works nicely for fingerboard/top seperations, for the price get 2 so you can work each side...

Lift with ease

after opening the seams it makes separation of the top from the Ribs a snap.

Sturdy Tool

By Little Crow from Atlanta, GA
(Customer's Reviews) Friday, June 01, 2012

Very sturdy tool for removing whatever needs to be removed. My only wish with this tool was that one long edge have a knife-edge to it to assist in disassembly of parts glued together improperly (as many big-name companies do when mass producing instruments) or to help cut through particularly tough glue spots.
