This high-quality steel knife is similar to the beveled knife, but the back of the blade has a slight contour to it rather than being completely flat. The serves to reduce the amount of metal that must be removed when the blade is sharpened. Many bassoon players prefer this style of knife. For personalizing this knife, choose your own handle size! We offer small, medium or large wooden handles. Also be sure to choose from either Right-Handed or Left-Handed.
