Early "Eureka" 8in Bevel Gauge.
This bevel is marked "Sargent's Patent July 22, 1873" on the blade. This patent is the basis for the Stanley no. 18 "Eureka" bevel gauge that's so popular among workers. I believe this is a "type 1" based on the information in Walter's guide to Stanley tools. It has a nice even patina and works well, despite a small bend in the blade near the end. An interesting, early bevel
