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.

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.

    Dovetail sawtooth marking knife

    Bought it in conjunction with the dovetail saw, thought it might improve my dovetails, which had been deteriorating noticeably, mainly due to my eyesight gradually getting worse with age. I found the saw difficult to use initially, it chattered and shuddered and bucked, fighting back. I soon found that no downward pressure is required, the weight of the saw and the aggressive teeth do the work, all I have to do is move my arm back and forth in a straight line, it cuts beautifully. The 2” of fine teeth on the front of the blade make starting a cut child’s play. I like the dovetail saw so much I bought the crosscut saw too, and it also cuts beautifully. Using the saw tooth marking knife to start a kerf in the pin board (I cut tails first) has improved my dovetail quality dramatically, no more gaps to fill. Great tools, great idea, great design. Keep up the good work!!

    I actually used your dovetail saw, marking saw and your techniques to include dovetails in an custom island project for a client in West Palm Beach. The dovetails were used for supports between front rail and back rail so they don’t show (covered by top and bottom shelf ). I didn’t want any metal fasteners so they gave me the strength through joinery instead. I will be incorporating more dovetails in the future. Thank you for excellent tools and instruction. One day I would love to attend a class.
