Shinwa Carpenter's Square - Flexible - Hard Chrome Finish - 8 Scales - 300mm


Thinner and springier than the standard version and without the little cut-out on the internal corner.

Shinwa 300mm x 150mm Japanese carpenters square with deeply etched metric full mm graduations measuring outwards from the corner inside and outside on both faces.

Hard chrome plated stainless steel, so no worries about fingermarks, and each square is hardened to Hv320+ for the perfect balance of stability and springiness.
