We have the first of many batches of Crucible Sliding Bevels up for sale in our store today. These are packed and ready for immediate shipment. They are made entirely in the USA. The price is $200.
If this batch sells out, don’t worry. We have many more on the way. The mill is running nonstop.

Wow, sold out in 10 minutes!
Dang, that was quick!! I hope the next batch is in soon, I’m really looking forward to getting one of these.
I hope the next version has a serrated edge and can opener. I have been wanting a survival bevel like Rambo would have if he was a woodworker. Just kidding, these look great, and I recently ran into a situation where i needed a shorter blade while keeping the same bevel angle while building this stool i am working on.
You forgot the laser indicator, so you can make sure your cutting line is accurate…
Wow. Gone in a flash. I’ll dry my tears with Vesper bevels.
Love it …and wondering….., will we see a crucible travisher some day ?
I can’t imagine a better travisher than Claire’s…..
Claire’s video guide and plans on making travishers and spokeshaves is good. I used it to make my own to avoid the wait list!
Just in time for Christmas!
Can I wish for a couple in red………I know, I know…………
Woodpeckers makes red sliding bevels.
Not a woodpecker fan
With some nail polish you can make them any colour you want.
Yes! I got one of the first numbered limited edition sliding bevels!
He got the purple anodized one with glow-stick boosters.
I thought it had the piezoelectric transducers.
And the color is supposed to be Mauveine.
I would much prefer the color to be rogue. Yes, i know the correct spelling of the color but it is always funnier how those two words get confused.
I got serial number one and a slip case!
Gone already! Will wait for more.
More on the way.
I was fortunate to have played with one at the last open house. They really are that nice and easy to adjust and lock. Barely any torque from the screw driver will set the screw exactly where it is, and it does not move until you release it. The weight of the tool is impressive. It will definitely stay where you put it.
Congrats to the buyers of the first wave!
I don’t urgently need one of these, as I already have a couple of Vesper bevels (and speaking of Chris Vesper, apparently his latest batch of bevels, earlier this week, sold out even faster than these did); however, I know for a fact that sooner or later I will want to add at least one Crucible bevel to the mix, and so I was just wondering if you expect your production to reach sufficient quantities sooner rather than later that you will be able to offer it also to your dealers around the world, like you’ve been able to do with the 2.0 dividers?
Obviously I’m not asking for an “international release date” or owt of that ilk, nor even a guesstimation thereof, but just how you think it’s likely to play out, as in “yeah, soon enough” or “might be a while” or “dunno, but don’t hold yer breath”…
My guess is it will be six months before we can sell them overseas. And even then, I’m not sure if our EU retailers will want to carry them because of the price. But I hope they will.
Thank you — that makes sense, and is very helpful to know.
Time’ll tell whether I, as the Flemings say, will “watch the cat out of the tree”, i.e. wait for overseas availability and retailer decision to bring them hither at lower cost to me, or pay the premium for succumbing to temptation before that occurs.
No prices will be handed out for guessing which scenario is the more likely by a fair percentage point …
Thanks again and all the best,
I understand the reason for no preorders. But could maybe in the future a email notification when in stock option be added? I use that feature a lot on the lie nielsen website and it has helped me secure most my out of stock items.
