Rating:
98% of 100
Designed to give the cleanest cuts with a minimum of waste, this Thin Kerf Parting Tool features a 1-1/4" blade width that eliminates the flexing and twisting associated with thin blades. The double-bevel HSS cutting face imparts fine parting lines to turnings. For a solid interface with the handle, the blade is seated and riveted a full 4-1/4" into the handle.

I have worn out two of these through the years. I know a good tool when I get the feel of one. This is a great tool. Well made, well balanced and well priced. Thanks Rockler I'm a customer a customer for life.

Thin cut off tool
Excellant tool, very nice - especially for tight spots. Comes almost ready to use ( just needs some final honing up to polish with 8,000 grit ).

Keep grain lines together. Replacement of 20 year old tool that has been sharpened many many times.
Jim R on Mar 22, 2017
To part prospective pyx covers from that which will be the body of the pyx and still maintain closer grain match.

When sharpening this tool what edges should I hone? both the long and short bevel?
Micah L on Mar 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Generally, I hone only the short bevel. In time the short bevel will get longer as tool material is gradually removed during the sharpening process. So every now and then I'll regrind the top/long bevel to bring the tool back to its original shape. I find that shape gives me greater access to areas where I tend to use the tool. For best performance, I try to keep the combined angle of both bevels to 70 degrees or less.

I hope this helps,

Mike G.
