Brass & Steel Sliding Bevel
An interesting craftsman made brass and steel sliding bevel.
Heavy brass stock with brass locking screw.
Fitted with a 111/2 inch steel blade.
Unlike the majority of factory made sliding bevels the blade on this one does not fit within the stock. The steel plate sandwiched between the brass body plates has a pointed top section which effectively prevents the blade from folding flat.
The round topped brass stock measures 13/16 inches wide by 53/16 inches long.
Surface pitting and staining spots on the blade.
A few surface knocks and scratches to the brass stock.
