Introducing the Yerg Skrȳb (patent Pending, scribe tool. 


Yerg Tools Aluminum Scribe Tool (Skryb) Knob

Nearly 30 years ago, Bruce Yergenson, a legacy Danish woodcrafts-man, found himself with few good options to trace contours of one surface onto a cut piece. After many long hours and scrapping many failed experiments, the original walnut Yerg Skrȳb was born. Offering comfortable contours, rigid construction, precise movement, ease of use, and elegance in hand that no other scribe tool offers. Whether you're fitting molding to masonry, baseboard to undulating floors, shelves into non-square corners, or panels in your camper van, THIS is the Scribe Tool (Skrȳb) for you!

With the Yerg Tools Skrȳb your profile scribing hassles are over! No more wondering if the $5 plastic pencil sleeve will do the job, or if you should have gone with that funky thing that looks like a pocket-sized robotic arm. We have all found ourselves with few remaining expletives - approaching the verge of tears - as we meticulously cope molding around masonry with make-shift means. After countless trips to the work-stand, and not a little anguish and self-searching, we settle on calling it "good enough". The pursuit of excellence has ended in compromise.

Desperate, some have turned to shifty plastic with knobs and proprietary graphite, which requires two-handed use of a clunky, unappealing instrument of Soviet-era workshops—unworthy of you.
