This marking knife has a left handed bevel. The handle and sheath are made of brass. The blade is made of hardened stainless steel. This knife is ideal for marking out joints and cutting thin material. It makes a great addition to any woodworker's tool set given that it's inexpensive, of high quality, and Japanese made at the same time.
Left or Right
A right and left hand bevel can be used in either hand. If you use a ruler to help mark a line with the knives, you would be able to mark on the right side of the ruler with the left hand bevel and the left side of the ruler with the right hand bevel.
