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.

Straight Blade:

  • 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.

Marking knife w/saw tooth blade

I have two dovetail saws; one’s blade is .018 thick and the second’s is .015. I was skeptical that the .02 marking saw blade would work in the narrower kerf but it’s fine in the .018. I haven’t tried the .015. I use the blade itself to offset the tail piece when scribing, don’t really see the need to use a marking gauge, and that works nicely plus cuts down on the tools at hand. The weight helps. This has become an essential component for me when cutting dovetails.

Good Quality

This marking knife is as advertised. However, Rob does not emphasize just how sturdy this handle is. It is really too heavy for a general purpose marking gauge in my opinion but it is excellent as a dovetail marking knife. The extra sturdiness is much needed in that application. That is what I bought it for so I am very happy with it.

Saw tooth blade and Rob's method really works

This is a great tool for marking out the pins. Using Rob's method of marking the pins eliminates any struggling of figuring out if you want to cut to the line or cut on the line. This saw tooth blade works wonder along with Rob's saw as they have the same kerf. It makes it so easy as you only need to drop your dovetail saw into the kerf created by this saw tooth blade. Just cut my first ever dovetail practice with this and Rob's saw following Rob's method. Pretty happy with the result and a lot to improve.

Excellent tool for marking out precise dovetails!

This tool is solid and a joy to use. I tried the new method of marking the pins with the tail kerfs and the results were very good. Having a saw kerf to guide your saw on the pin board makes things a whole lot easier and precise.
