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.

    I feel Like I'm cheating!

    I purchased the Rob Cosman Regular Dovetail saw , the Offset spacer, and the marking knife/blade combo. I use to HATE, HATE, HATE making dovetails as they always were gapped, crooked and confusing for me. With these three simple tools, I am achieving upper excellence in not only marking out, cutting and fitment, but in my confidence to use Dovetails on anything that is worthy of them. I am blown away at the results I am getting. Don't be fooled by my review, it still takes work to make sure

    1- you have the saw plumb
    2- your score marks are correct and you used the correct thickness of spacing per your blade (Mine is 24 thou)
    3- Your chisels are SHARP!!!
    4- You have a good marking knife or gauge
    5- Practice, practice, practice.
    6- Finally, follow a routine, mark your parts and stay diligent to that process.

    Works as intended

    If you watch the videos, I also purchased the brass offset and use the 26 as I have a Lie-neilson dovetail saw. Works perfectly.

    Cosman marking knife

    I use this knife to teach dovetails to students. I like the fine scribe marks I get with this knife. Say hi to Rob for me. I had a stroke in 2022 and had to retire. I have since recovered and am back teaching,

    Dovetail marking saw blade

    It worked great. It’s a little tight because my dovetail saw is a Lie Nielsen and the set is 23 thousandths but otherwise it’s well made and easy to use.
