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 HERE.
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.
Allows you to "saw" a starting kerf in the pin-board.
Getting used to it and getting better at using it.
I haven't had time to use it yet but I'm looking forward to it - particularaly the saw-toothed blade.
The product was just like described! Now if only I could cut the dovetails as tight as Rob does:) Thanks for all you do!
Makes a world of difference to line up the saw blade.
unfortunately, the toothed knife blade is thicker than my Japanese pull saw 's kerf so it won't fit in the kerf. I'll have to get another saw. But I think the idea is sound.
