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.
This is certainly a much easier approach to dovetails. Cutting pins is practically trivial after using this.
I’m enjoying my newfound way of making dovetails. Thanks Rob for all your great videos. I’m having lots of fun woodworking.
Excellent follow through
was struggling to get tight dove tails and this made all the difference
Excellent tool. It sets the next dovetail cut perfectly and helps start the saw.Thank you.
