However for more everyday domestic marking a scriber might be less useful due to the mark being difficult to remove one made.

The line marked with a scriber is much more precise than if marked with a pen or graphite pencil and as a result they allow for better overall results in the accuracy of hole placement, cutting etc. Commonly known as just a scriber, an engineers scriber tool is used to mark materials, like wood metals and plastics before they undergo machining. Engineer scribers often feature a much more solid design with a sharper point ideal for use with materials such as metal and steel, whereas a carpenter scriber is designed for marking softer materials such as wood prior to using carving tools. Scribers can be manufactured from a wide range of materials including aluminium, chrome vanadium steel and feature a tip often made from tungsten carbide or diamond. Mostly used by professional tradespeople or DIY enthusiasts, scribers can be used in a wide range of industries, from woodwork and carpentry, to machining and engineering, even domestic DIY.Scribing tools are an excellent addition to any toolset that can be used in a wide range of applications.

The disadvantages of scribers over other marking tools are that the lines they make can’t easily be removed, without grinding or polishing. They are hardy for their size and are usually made from metals like aluminium and steel alloy with a tip made from tungsten carbide or another hard material like diamond.
