The production of engineer’s squares is largely controlled by standards, like the British BS939 or German DIN871.
As well as dictating the tolerances to which the square must conform, these standards also specify the materials used and the design.
Because the purchasing departments of large companies use these standards to define their requirements, most manufacturers stick to them rigidly and only manufacture products that conform to the standard in all respects.
But what happens when you dare to step away from the standard and make something deliciously different; just because you think it ought to exist?
Produced from state-of-the-art titanium and carbon fibre the Kinex Ultralight Square is more accurate than either engineer’s grade B or DIN875/1. It weighs just 12g (just under half an ounce) - light enough to slip into a shirt pocket without affecting the perpendicularity of your tie.
The carbon fibre cheeks of the stock are set back 4mm from the inside of the plate, so it will rest on an edge all by itself. The clean, minimalist design accentuates the quality of the materials used and surface finish achieved through careful uncompromising manufacture.
The Kinex Ultralight is presented in a purpose made milled aluminium gift box with a fitted foam rubber insert and sliding acrylic lid.
