Getting a handle on it

A tiny update to the Veritas Dovetail Saw blurb. BugBear got all excitable with the images of the LV and LN handles and came up with this:

He's kindly given permission to use it, so I have. The red line is the Veritas and the blue the LN. It's a very small difference, isn't it? It's interesting though; when I had a couple of prototypes to try, the difference in those was apparently only 5%, which doesn't sound like much, and yet the contrast was noticeable. It's a lesson to us handle meddlers; spare the rasp and don't spoil the handle. Try a file instead.  ;)


  1. Interesting overlay, BB...thanks, Alf, for posting it.

    Hope all is well with you and yours. Merry Ho Ho.

    Take care, Mike

  2. Boy...I hope that Rob Lee made sure that LN did not have a design patent on that handle. :-)
