Offset Disassembly Knife

About This Item

The riveted rosewood handle is offset to protect the soundboard when lifting a bridge or fingerboard.

Also great for cleaning glue from a loose brace, and similar tasks. The 3-1/2" blade is ground thin for flexibility. 7-1/2" overall.

I used the knife to remove a bridge, and it made the job much easier.

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

Sturdy Tool

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.

This is one of the least expensive tools in the StewMac catalog, so I didn't expect much. But it is really nice quality. Very thin, flexible blade, nice handle. I use it to work glue in hairline seams/cracks It's stamped 'Made in Japan'- don't hesitate to buy one of these if you need it.

I am a beginner at acoustic guitar repair and this is the first Offset Disassembly Knife that I purchased and it worked perfectly at removing the bridge of my first guitar repair. It does the job.
