I purchased the kadet version of the marking knife and decided I wanted the big one i.e. Fat Boy, but wanted the challange of doing it myself so I bought the kit. I will upload picture as soon as I figure a way to put them in here.

What wood did you use for the handle? I have an ebony kerf kadet and love it, super sharp and great for marking inside your joinery. Once you have it completed and had a chance to try it out I’ll be curious to read your review of the Fat Boy.

Hey Scott,
Yea I have the ebony kerf kadet also, I will either be making the handle for the Fat Boy out of a piece of Palo Cruz my wife brought back from Peru for me (mission trip) or blood wood. The ferrule should be fun as it is enclosed. They don’t normally sell that ferrule usually it’s an open one. Should be fun. I should have it done in a couple of weeks. We have relatives in town this week and woodturning club Thursday night and I have 2 pen projects in front of this one. I like Czeck’s handle design and I think on the marking knife I will stay close to what they do since I’m really happy with the kadet. I also go the bird cage awl kit and will review it and the Fat Boy when I get them completed. Ciao
