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.
Product was represented well. High quality.
Still waiting for the camel train to arrive with my new tools.Regards Lawrence Morgan.
Like ANYTHING that Rob Cosman puts his hands on, it works perfectly as advertised & makes you wonder “why didn’t someone think of this before??”
Let me start by saying that the reason this tool didn't work for me as good as it could is because I wasn't using a Rob Cosman dovetail saw. I'm using a lie Nielsen dovetail saw and 5 thousands of an inch makes all the difference in the world. It would be nice if the dovetail marking saw came with a blade at 20 thousands of an inch thick versus 25 so that it would work with lie Nielsen dovetail saw without binding up in the kerf but no one said life was supposed to be fair. Alas, I know what the remedy for this situation is... Buy a Rob Cosman dovetail saw. Once I eventually do that I am certain that this tool will preform exceptionally well.
Works very well in marking the saw placement for cutting the pins. Great idea compared to transferring tail marks and sawing to the side of them. Well worth it!
