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.
Straight 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.
Who would have thought to put a saw blade in a Dovetail Marking Knife?
Excellent idea and excellent quality.
Great Marking Knife!

My new dovetail marking knife
I've using a hand-me-down marking knife for many years but it has a somewhat flexible blade. Your marking knife has fixed this with a very stiff blade that makes marking more accurate.
Quality tool, works as well as expected, I was also very pleased when I recieved a phone call from Rob to thank me for the purchase.
just basic testing I will be making a jewlery box shortly and will give it a work out
Dovetail Marking Knife / Regular Saw Tooth
Excellent tool. I was surprised at the weight of the product. You can watch Rob use his tools on YouTube but when you put it in your hands you know he takes pride in what he makes and sells.
