IBC/Andy King Striking Knives
Jointly developed by IBC and Good Woodworking Magazine Technical Editor Andy King. The regular striking knife is ideally suited to general layout work and the marking of shoulderlines, while the precision striking knife is ideally suited to the marking of dovetail joints. Once struck the marked line is used as a register for the chisel or saw to ensure the cutting of accurate joints.
Both knives feature a finely machined arrow head blade made from IBCs unique high vanadium AISI A2 tool steel. A single sided duel 25 degree bevel and angled at 55 degrees make them ideal for left or right handed use. The blades are hardened to 58-60 HRC with a double temper and cryogenically treated to ensure the ultimate in edge retention.
The handles are turned to an ergonomic profile from selected American Black Walnut that offers the user excellent control and comfort then fitted with a stainless steel ferrule to bolster the connection between the blade and socket.
All in all one of the finest striking knives currently available with the quality of an heirloom tool but without the price tag.
