Top of the range Vesper Sliding Bevels. These matched sets have infills for all three bevels cut from the same block of timber and kept together through the production process. Production is very limited, we only do a very small batch of these once per year.
In stock - One only set in Kingwood.
Available Nov/Dec 2017 will be the following:
Black Red Gum.
These top of the line sets are finished to the highest level possible by Chris Vesper himself. All care is taken with the details of finish on the brass, the timber infills and their polishing, and the blades.
Timbers available are not limited to but include the following:
-10,000 yr old Black Red Gum.
-Tasmanian Blackwood (rich dark figured)
-Olive Wood (figured)
-Australian Ebony (D. humilis)
-Birds Eye Huon Pine.
Any Dalbergia species (Brazilian Rosewood, African Blackwood, Cocobolo) is subject to import/export restrictions. CITES certification will have to be obtained at cost of the purchaser for any cross-border sales. All timbers used at Vesper Tools are pre ban. This precious resource should be used very sparingly and we feel that infills in tools that are destined fro 100-200 years of use are fitting for these majestic timbers.
