I make Kydex holsters and knife sheaths. This is a great product for laying out the dimensions on the Kydex. Thanks, Blick.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I should have heeded the previous reviewer. The edges (the cutting and the opposite edge) are too wide by 1/32" to 1/16" on mine as well. I bought 2 each of the 12" and the 18" version, and the grid is off on all of the them. Clearly this defect is not and isolated occurrence. I bought these to replace one I thought I had lost. Good thing my old accurate one turned up! Seriously, is there ANYTHING being made today that meets the quality standards of a decade or two ago?
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Great for Xacto cutting!

For a long time I used an Alumnicutter. They had a steel edge that was good for the edge to follow, but I couldn't see through them and the steel edge falls out of the aluminum ruler! Enter the C-Thru Grid Ruler. Wow. See thru and steel edge? I'm in heaven and my cuts are easier than ever. Shipped quickly by Blick and at a fair price. Happy customer.

I purchased this ruler to use for measuring and cutting thin strips of paper that needed to be cut to exact measurements for a specific project. I quickly discovered that the grid lines along both long edges of the ruler were NOT 1/8" like the rest of the grid lines on the ruler. The side with the metal edge was 1/16" wider, and the other edge was 1/32" wider. I own a similar ruler (also B-1M) that is at least 10 years old, and was originally manufactured by C-THRU, but all gridlines are accurate. At some point in time, it appears that the production of these rulers changed, perhaps since Westcott took over ownership. I'm very dissapointed that these rulers are not accurate.
