Description:
This is a real gadget-- it is a basic scribe hook, but with a cutting knife on each side to save the user the drudgery of having to turn the turn the tool end-fo-end when marking opposite ends of the board.

Even more amazing, the tool is split in half and hinged, with a sliding pivot arm to hold the arms at a specified angle. This allows the same tool to be used as a try square, miter square, or bevel gage, and still take advantage of hte sliding knives.
