Antique used sorby 9 1/2-inch long 1/2-inch spindle / bowl gauge made in sheffield, angleterre, c. 1900 with a wonderful rich wooden handle and brass connection made with the quality of the old world. It is an ancient tool and the blade is still strong, the bowl is 3 1/4 inches long. Its difficult to reproduce the old sorby quality so that this tool would make a wonderful gift to this special person or it would be a delicious addition to a collection of old tools or display. The patina of the handle is original, I brushed the blade to make it feel better, while keeping the old patina of the steel.
It feels and looks great.
