They are not Starret or hand...

Seth B from Phoenix, AZ Posted December 31, 2012
They are not Starret or hand scraped Bridgeport, but they are pretty darn decent for the price. A company that sells these for luthrie use charges 80% more for a less accurate product.  I know if you put the words, gun smithing, luthrie, jewelry, etc in front of a simple product the price goes up 50%-500%. These are kinda thin, but they are supposedly parallel so the non knife edge is also straight. They work quite well for me. .001" will make a guitar not play at all on one string at that fret. So far these are working fine for set ups on instruments and tools alike.Rockler ships fast, and safe.

The product is exactly as advertised...

Michael R G from Mandeville, LA Posted October 6, 2012
The product is exactly as advertised and is a high quality straight edge with a precision ruler. It makes an excellent dual-purpose straight edge and ruler. I find, however, that I mostly want to use it as a straight edge and have lots of other rulers to use for measurement. The thin design of this straight edge makes it fairly easy to knock-over so I find myself being very careful with it to avoid damaging the straight edge, my workpiece, or my equipment when I accidentally (and quite easily) knock it over. If you're really looking for a straight edge and don't want to have to baby-it then look for a different product. If you want (and really need) the dual functionality then this a quality ruler/straight-edge combo.
