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.

Using a "swiss cheese knife" to fix the back on a 1923 Gibson

Dan Erlewine's working on great old Gibson L-1 with back problems. The challenge: how to fix this on a budget today, in a way that won't interfere with more thorough repair work in the future.

Tool For The Job

By

Used to remove neck from 60's Harmony Stella, got lucky and didn't even have to steam it! This knife separated the fingerboard from the top and loosened up the dovetail with out leaving a mark, though the joint was a bit loose already still had a bit of glue holding it. I was able to cleanly remove the neck with just a few minutes of working this knife around the joints.

Just buy one, or two.
I use this for alot of things, sometimes even for it's intended purpose!
It is excellent for working glue into tight areas, separating things likes bridges, fingerboards, holding down a CA glue up.
Tape sandpaper to it to sand in tight areas too.

Removed a split bridge and pick guard from a 1972 Martin D28 - no issues.
Great price - great product - fast shipping - all you can ask for.

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.

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...
