Rob Cosman's Dovetail Marking Knife Plus .025 inch Thick Kerf 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 Straight Making Knife Blade and my .025 inch Thick Kerf 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.
.025 inch Thick Kerf Saw-Tooth Blade:
Designed specifically for use with my dovetail transfer technique.
Leaves a .025 inch thick kerf.
- Designed to work with any dovetail saw that leaves a .025 inch -.026 inch thick kerf.
DOES NOT fit any Rob Cosman Dovetail Saw kerf.
Marking gauge works very well. The saw attachment gives a clear, straightforward way to start the cut. Highly recommend.
Works as advertised. I use mine with a Veritas dovetail saw and fits the kerf perfectly. Sorry Rob didn't have Cosman dovetail saw money at the time.
Pleasently surprised at the weight of the knive. The knive is also well balanced when being used.
This is definately going to be my goto for marking dovetails.
I bought this .025” kerf knife because I have a LN dovetail saw that is .026”. Fits very tight in the kerf, but a little wax on the sides of the blade fix that. Works great!
Good 👍. Watched Rob on a YouTube video.
