Product Information:

Working with renowned blade manufacture IBC, Rob Cosman has re-created every aspect of his most trusted tool, the Dovetail Marking Knife. The handle is made of cast aluminum, with just the right weight and balance to be used right-handed or left-handed, and the rectangular shape ensures proper blade orientation. The IBC blade has a standard bevel and a micro bevel that prevents the blade from wandering, especially on end grain, and the thin blade allows for marking in the tiniest of openings. The 1-1/4" long blade has a slightly rounded cutting surface that allows full contact with the wood surface, regardless of the angle at which the tool is being used. Handle length is 6".

Comments about Rob Cosman Dovetail Marking Knife :

The title is self explanatory. most accurate sharp and useful marking knives for dovetails only cost approx 25% of the cost of this item. Rob and woodcraft inc are clearly over pricing this item.Dont be fooled you can make your own knife to do the same task

  • Hand-cut Dovetails

Comments about Rob Cosman Dovetail Marking Knife :

I learned hand-cut dovetails from Rob Cosman's DVDs and have had very good results. The one thing I always found difficult was marking the pin board accurately. The lines from a traditional marking knife are too fine to be seen well. Traditional marking knives are too thick, too short, too sharp, and don't mark accurately adjacent to the tails. I even tried one that would cut into the tails while marking. This knife easily and consistently makes accurate scribe lines. The lines are easy to see as well. It gets between tightly spaced tails for those thin pins that are the hallmark of hand-cut dovetails. After 2 practice joints to get used to cutting pins marked with the knife, I achieved perfect results. "Splitting the line" like Rob talks about makes sense now.
