Rob Cosman's Dovetail Marking Knife Plus 3/4 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 Marking Knife Blade and our 3/4 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.
3/4 Saw-Tooth Blade:
Designed specifically for use with my dovetail transfer technique.
Made of the same blade material as my 3/4 Dovetail Saw, .019 inch thick kerf.
- 3/4 Saw Tooth Blade has 22 TPI so it fits into the kerf easily.
- Allows you to "saw" a starting kerf in the pin-board.
A bit disappointed
Very excited to receive my first Rob Cosman tool. But after assembling the handle I noticed the screw countersink to be laughably off center. Not sure if it's meant to be loose but the blade wiggles up and down slightly. I'm guessing die to lack of clamping pressure. I would've thought spending $80 on a marking knife this would be of higher quality.
