Details

The ideal knife for removing tops, backs and fingerboards from most instruments.

The stiff 3-3/4" x 3/4" high-carbon steel blade has a long knife edge that is capable of cleanly entering narrow cracks for separating a glue seam.

The gentle wedge-shaped cross-section exerts the ideal pressure to help the glue yield, yet doesn't tend to cut into the wood. The blade can be heated and moisture applied to help speed the work. Hardwood handle.

Strong

This is my go-to tool when a seam is resisting my efforts to separate it. Very sharp, no gouging, but strong enough to apply necessary leverage.

Great knife

Super useful for opening up seams. The razor edge is just that - quite sharp. A no-brainer, especially given the price.

When you need a good, sharp, sturdy blade to wedge in between things, this is your knife. For the price, it is superbly made and useful in many applications.

Cool tool

I like this tool a lot. It will replace some of the knives and chisels I have used in the past for multiple jobs. Including hand cutting v shaped patches for cracks in spruce tops.

Another Pleasant Surprise

Just like the offset knife - this is a dandy tool. Inexpensive and well-made in good old Nippon(Japan). Sort of the Ibanez of knives ;-) The blade is great- I use it as-stated to open up seams I'm getting ready to re-glue.

Fretboard removal made easy

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I will never attempt another fretboard removal with anything but this tool. It cut my time by 60% and leaves the separation seams clean enough to not require additional finishing upon reassembly.

Simple Excellence

This gem is a "fooler." In reality, the gentle wedge and razor sharp leading edge makes for controlled separation of glued seams. What was a purchase on a "whim," has become a reliable tool.
