For over thirty years one of my most trusted dovetail tools has been my marking knife. Working with renowned blade manufacturer IBC, we have created the best knife for transferring tails to your pin board.  I think you will find this knife to be your missing link for laying out and cutting dovetail pins.

  • The knife body is made of metal and is surprisingly hefty

  • Two piece body with space to store a spare blade.

  • The rectangular handle will register in your hand to help you “feel” the blade's position.

  • Comes with two blades: Straight blade & saw tooth blade.

  • Replacement blades available.

Straight Blade:

  • Specifically designed for transferring tails to the pin-board using the traditional marking technique.

  • Wide at the tip for better registration against the tail.

  • Radius tip “track’s” in the end grain, helping to prevent the knife from straying off course as you mark your lines.

  • Micro-bevel on both sides prevents cutting into the tail and creates a mark that is easy to see.

Saw Tooth Blade:

  • Designed specifically for use with my dovetail transfer technique.

  • Made of the same blade material as my dovetail saw.

  • Saw tooth blade is 22 TPI, so it goes easily into the kerf.
  • Allows you to "saw" a starting kerf in the pin-board.

Dovetail sawtooth marking knife

Bought it in conjunction with the dovetail saw, thought it might improve my dovetails, which had been deteriorating noticeably, mainly due to my eyesight gradually getting worse with age. I found the saw difficult to use initially, it chattered and shuddered and bucked, fighting back. I soon found that no downward pressure is required, the weight of the saw and the aggressive teeth do the work, all I have to do is move my arm back and forth in a straight line, it cuts beautifully. The 2” of fine teeth on the front of the blade make starting a cut child’s play. I like the dovetail saw so much I bought the crosscut saw too, and it also cuts beautifully. Using the saw tooth marking knife to start a kerf in the pin board (I cut tails first) has improved my dovetail quality dramatically, no more gaps to fill. Great tools, great idea, great design. Keep up the good work!!

I actually used your dovetail saw, marking saw and your techniques to include dovetails in an custom island project for a client in West Palm Beach. The dovetails were used for supports between front rail and back rail so they don’t show (covered by top and bottom shelf ). I didn’t want any metal fasteners so they gave me the strength through joinery instead. I will be incorporating more dovetails in the future. Thank you for excellent tools and instruction. One day I would love to attend a class.

All is good quality. However the instructions are extremely hard to read and faded. Stick to black and white lettering.

mariah knife with saw tooth blade

Still trying ti get the hang of it. I do not have the same type shop as RC, so I have to make amends. My biggest difficult is holding the tools securely in place while I mark the cut.
