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.
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!
Good so far. Enjoy watching RC on Youtube and have learned a bunch. It is harder that it looks to do this well
Just tried it out, haven’t really done a lot with it yet. Seems like great idea, better than marking knife. Great quality tool.
Excellent after a quick honing works great
This marking knife/saw does exactly what it is supposed to and makes the dovetailing process much easier. Following Robs method makes the process easier to understand and get better results!!
