The Gaboon Ebony gauge is jet black. It sometimes has a very faint gray streak in the grain pattern. These gauges are exceptional, have a very nice weight and are just gorgeous.

    Beautiful tool! I bought the same 4" gauge in cherry 10 years ago and still using it. The ebony one recently purchased is a jewel. I can see the refinements from the past.

    I wanted a small cutting gauge and this one is just beautiful, and works like a charm! The fence setting is very positive and it slides sweetly and locks securely. Fit and finish of the whole thing is remarkable!

    4" Ebony Marking Gauge

    I like fine hand tools. My 4” Ebony marking gauge is a stand out. The combination of brass and jet black wood, clearly make it beautiful. And the joinery is as tight as I would see on a machined metal tool. But it is more than just good looking. It strikes a line just like it is supposed to do; across the grain or with the grain. It feels good in the hand, and doesn’t roll around when I set it down. Since I believe “form follows function”, I think this is one of the finest examples of what both form and function can be. I’ll be getting another one soon.

    Gaboon Ebony Marking Gauge

    I recently received my 4" marking gauge. I gave it a good going over and here is what I found; the fit and finish were exceptional. The edges were straight and sharp were needed and smooth and rounded were appropriate. The brass to wood fit showed no gaps. The wood finish is highly polished and smooth.

    I have used the marking gauge to mark a variety of wood both with and across the grain. The blade is extremely sharp and leaves a clean easy to see line even when marking with the grain. The gauge is easy to set due to its forward sitting blade. Some care must be taken when setting the gauge due to the blade being set into the bar Approximately ten thousands of an inch. The blade needs to be set on the wood rather than the bar when setting the blade depth.

    I ordered the gauge and it arrived within seven days and that's with the gauge being made after the order.

    Overall this is a finely finished functional marking gauge which is a pleasure to use and own.
