A magnetic inspection probe for use in the planar measurement of magnetic properties in two or more defined directions. The inspection probe includes a cup-shaped outer body, a centrally disposed central core, a field generating power coil, a flux coil for measuring magnetic induction and a plurality of field detection elements disposed in various known orientations. In use, the inspection probe of the present invention permits the detection and measurement of anisotropy of material characteristics in at least two directions across the plane of measurement.
