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

This by far is the best marking knife I have used for marking a pin boards and allowing one to get in tight to narrow tails.

The Marking Knife for Dovetails
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.
