Guitar Repair Palette Knives, Set of 7

About This Item

Luthiers loved our Bridge/Fingerboard Removal Knife (now the Original Large, Guitar Repair Palette Knife), but wanted a variety of shapes and sizes to use for different repairs. We listened and found 7 new palette knives that work perfectly for guitar work. Each of the new palette knives has a different shape and feel, so you can find exactly the right one for the job you are doing.

Get all of our palette knives in one convenient package. Each knife has many uses—you'll constantly find a new use from bridge, brace, and fingerboard repairs, mixing paints, stains, epoxies, and more. They're easy to modify for a custom tool too.

Each knife has a polished stainless steel blade and solid wood handle with smooth black finish.

Set includes:

For Bridge/Fingerboard removal
4514 Original Large Also sold separately
4726 Rounded Edge Also sold separately
4727 Diamond Also sold separately
4728 Original Small Also sold separately

For precise tasks
4515 Narrow Large Also sold separately
4516 Narrow Small Also sold separately
4729 Extra Long Also sold separately

When using palette knives, warm the glued area first to help soften the bond. Be careful not to use a hot knife around finish.

For repair situations when a hot knife is needed, you can heat the knife with a heat gun, heat blanket, or with hot water in a glue pot.

Get the perfect simple tools for complicated repairs.

I’m of the school that generally fabricates tools and jigs I need and don’t have. Recently, I was discovered by the our valley school system’s combined orchestra organization, meaning they send me all their wounded string instruments. Fortunately, I have an entire basement connected to a two car garage. I found myself up to my ears in violins, violas, cellos and double basses. Many need tips removed to repair cracks and crushed ribs. I just didn’t have time to make all the extra blades thin enough to slip into the seams and melt the Hyde glue to separate the delicate tops off. I bought the whole set of knives from StewMac. One would think they’re a bit too flexible but actually that keeps you from forcing the pressure combined with heat to avoid damaging the wood.
