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 HERE.
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.
Very high quality, but what’s the best thing is the whole concept of shifting the tail board left and right to layout the pin board, pure genius.... Thanks again, RonW.
I think it works great as I continue to use and learn
I like how Rob’s gear seems to come from a place of Lean/Six Sigma. What I mean by that, is he seems to try to distill a process/method down to the most simple and logical process/method possible for the best results, eliminating any wasted effort and time. Take for example this tool. Rob figured out a way to simplify the process of dovetail joinery by creating a new tool and to increase accuracy while eliminating unnecessary tasks/steps for the process. Using logic, it seems to me that this tool and Rob’s technique should make things quicker/better at creating dovetails. Get you one!
I absolutely love the shirt, the marking knife and saw blade, and the 2 inch square. I also bought my first 5 1/2 jack plane from WoodCraft when they were selling for $229! I absolutely love what you guys do and look forward to each and every video that comes out. I love it when your dad gets all choked up talking about the PHP. You guys are great!
Excellent service with excellent product , feels like very good quality and just as advertised.
