These are traditionally called Blindman's Rules, because the markings are very large and easy to read. They remain just as attractive and functional today as they were 100 years ago. With their complex solid brass joints, these hardwood rules are not easy tools to make well. Highly recommended as one of the most classic tools any woodworker can add to his toolbox. The 36" length folds down to a 9" long section. Easily slips into a pants pocket.

What a find!
Reviewed By:   (Cary, NC) 
First of all, this length is the most useful around the shop and the house. At 36", it gets most jobs done. The "blind man's" markings are a real boon as well. I also like the fact that these are NOT manufactured in Asia, but are made in Holland. The only thing that kept me from giving this 5 stars is that the edges tend to be splintery. Piece of cake, just take some 200 grit sand paper to the sharp wood edges to knock them down, and all is good. Bought two of them so I could send one to my brother!

Bapa's Ruler
Reviewed By:   (Lynn, MA) 
Have wanted this type of ruler for a long time; my grandfather (Bapa) had one and it's nowhere to be found. I'm trying to do work recreating how our forefather's did it (Kicking it old school) and this is accurate and helps me achieve my goals.

Old Time Folding Rule
Reviewed By:   (Lynn, MA) 
Am a bit of a "Tool Junkie" and had been looking for this item for a long time > My Grandfather had one that I remember from the early 1950's. Have used this already at least six times and so enjoy much better than a Tape Measure. For bench work under 3', I will use this ruler!

One yard at a time
Reviewed By:   (Fairfa, VA) 
I gave these to members of my family. They are beautiful and what surprised me is how my 8 year old grandson, Samuel, really liked it. The graphic lettering and cleverness of the way it unfolds makes it one the best gifts I handed out in 2012. With all things so electronic and digital--this brings us back to treasured things and time.

Quality Tool
Reviewed By:   (Arlington, TX) 
As a retired Neanderthal I find the very large markings on the Blindman's rule very easy to read. The quality of the rule itself harkens back to the days of slow, patient woodworking. I still remember using a four-fold rule my father gave me for Christmas many years ago during WWII when metal was not readily available. Thank you Garrett Wade for a beautiful product and bringing back beautiful memories. I am using my rule today.
