Great Lakes Timber Scribe
A timber scribe, mostly used by surveyors, is designed to allow you to mark trees, timber, logs, wood, etc. with not only straight lines, but curved letters. For instance, a timber scribe would allow you to carve BT (Bearing Tree) into a tree. (For a smooth writing surface, clear off a portion of tree bark with a Bark Knife, Axe, Machete or Hatchet first.) The Great Lakes Timber Scribe employs a double edged cutting blade that forms a 5/8" radius which can be used ambidextrously (right or left handed) to carve letters and numbers and straight lines.
The Great Lakes Timber Scribe is made with a mildly tempered steel blade so it holds its edge. The edge can easily be resharpened with a chainsaw file (5/32"). When not using your Great Lakes Timber Scribe, store it in the included leather holster and wear it on your belt.
The Great Lakes Timber Scribe was designed by a professional surveyor and is made in the USA!
