Rob Cosman's Dovetail Marking Knife with Saw Tooth Blade
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.
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.
Very sturdy knife for marking dovetails. Works great for marking dovetails with saw blade. More accurate sawing. Lov the Cosman dovetail saw! Very high quality.
Dovetails are looking a lot better with this knife and the layout process. Thanks, David T.
I really like the saw but was disappointed that it didn’t come with a wooden box as shown on YouTube.
I've been busy with other things. I am going to build a few drawers for a cabinet. Was impressed by Rob's dovetail instructions and I'm going to try it. I'm an 80 year old hobby wood worker.
Getting used to it and getting better at using it.
