Editor's Review: Sliding Bevels

by Michael Pekovich

review date: April 7, 2011

The biggest challenge in making a sliding bevel is to create a locking mechanism that holds the blade firmly without interfering with the use of the tool. On most models, it doesn’t take much to knock the blade off angle, but the sliding bevels from Vesper Tools of Australia lock tight with a simple twist of a knurled brass knob. The locking mechanism holds the blade more securely than any other bevel I’ve used, and it is always out of the way.

In addition, the fit and finish of the tool is flawless. The beefy stainless-steel blade fits like a glove to the solid or wood-infilled brass body. The solid body is less expensive, but I prefer the feel and balance of the infilled one.

It’s rare to come across a perfect tool, but Vesper’s sliding bevels come pretty close. If you can afford one, you won’t be sorry.
