Doiron Carbide Checkering Tools


Checkering is the art of producing the checkered patterns on the grips of firearms using a small tool and extreme precision. Doiron is one of the most well-respected names in the check tool production industry and offers their own line of Doiron carbide checkering tools that are both hand and power tools.

Powered Checkering Head

  • The Doiron powered checking head mounts to a pencil-like rod that spins the head like a circular saw blade. The miniature blade cuts through the material leaving the checker pattern makers grooves perfect, helping to eliminate errors made by hand tools and saving a significant amount of time to an already lengthy process.

Multi Line Tool

  • The Doiron multi-line tool is just what it says it is. It creates multiple lines in one cut, from 18 to 32 lines per inch, in fact. This is another time-saving tool from Doiron. The adjustable carbide blade depth allows you to cut even lines with a lesser depth and go over the lines for the final depth with a simple set screw adjustment.

Push and Pull Scraping Tool

  • The scraping tools carve individual lines using either a pushing or pulling motion. The line forms by consistently scraping in a linear direction to form a perfect groove. The depth of these tools is not adjustable, but you can sharpen the carbide blase or discard a used one for replacement. The push pull tools are the original checkering tools used by gun and stock-smiths and are still common today by craftsmen all over the world.
