    Another Marking Knife

    Since I gave my first one to Dad, I needed to make another marking knife. I think it was Mike W. that suggested pinning the blade in a round hole with half dowels. It worked great! Thanks Mike! It as made of walnut with a bronze ferrule. The blade was from a floor scraper blade that has been floating around for about a year.



    Hope you like it!

    Fantastic, Ed--and you are welcome. I lifted the idea form another. Glad to see it was used for such a beautiful marking knife!

    Take care, Mike

    Great lookingt marking knife.

    Ed how long is the handle including the ferrule?

    Can the blade be made from an old jointer or planer blade?

    Thanks for the replies guys I really appreciate it!

    Bart, the handle is just under 6". I really didn't go by any measurements, just what seemed about right. A jointer or planer blade would probably work, I just don't know how hard it would be to work with. The last knife I made, I used an old recip saw blade and that works well too.

    Hi Ed,
    That is a handsome tool. If it works as good as it looks you will get tens across the board. .....10.........10...........10......
