Rob Cosman's Dovetail Marking Knife Plus Regular Saw Tooth Blade
For over thirty years one of my most trusted dovetail tools has been my old red marking knife. Taking the best of my old marking knife and adding some improvements, 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 transferring your tails to the pin board and cutting perfectly mating pins.
The knife body is made of metal and is surprisingly hefty.
Two piece body with space to store a second blade.
The rectangular handle will register in your hand to help you “feel” the blade's position.
Comes with our Making Knife Blade and my Regular Saw Tooth Blade.
.Replacement blades available.
Marking Knife Blade:
This straight blade is designed for tracing tails onto the pin-board using traditional marking techniques.
Radius tip “track’s” in the end grain.
Wide at the blade tip for better registration against the tail.
Regular Saw-Tooth Blade:
Designed specifically for use with my dovetail transfer technique.
Made of the same blade material as my regular Dovetail Saw, .024 inch thick kerf.
- Regular Saw Tooth Blade has 22 TPI so it fits into the kerf easily.
Allows you to "saw" a starting kerf in the pin-board.
Let me tell you something, before I purchased this here product, my dovetails were looser than a politicians morals. Purchased this alone with the Shaun shim, and the combo of the 2 completely changed my dovetails. 10/10 would recommend
Review of Cosman Dovetail Marking Knife
The knife and extra blade arrived quickly and in great shape. They work as advertised and are well worth it.
Excellent DT Tool!
This with Rob's offset method is a game changer, unless you enjoy endless paring.
Exceeds my expectations!
YouTube clearly demonstrates Rob Cosman’s techniques & tool at work and my router-driven dovetail jig is up for sale! This lil’ saw blade slides right next to ‘tails to mark exactly where the pins are cut. In ALL the videos & explanations there is: • NO loud router cutting the pins & dovetails. • NO sawdust & chips flying everywhere! Minimal dust & chips created for hand-cutting.
Does what it's supposed to do. Very sturdy, just one criticism, the handle did not meet completely along that seam. I used a file to clean out the paint where the blade goes into the handle. Almost completely closed now. no big deal though it holds the blades firmly
