This marking knife features a 2" blade (longer than many knives) that is less
than 1/16" thick with a double bevel on one side. It can easily be used right or
left handed. The sheath and handle are made of one piece of cherry wood,
finished with a protective coat of linseed oil.
A brass pin secures the blade in the handle. It is seen on the same side as our
logo to visually indicate the proper position of sheath. The sheath has a small
rare earth magnet buried within to prevent it from sliding off when not in use
The knife is held like a pencil, with your middle finger always on the blade when
you mark. This technique offers accuracy and consistency. Your grip on a tapered
handle like ours will be far more comfortable and secure than a turned handle.
This longer blade knife used with the proper technique, will permit you to reach
into the largest or tightest dovetail with ease.
