I had made one of these sometime ago from a plain piece of maple and since I was actually using it I thought I’d make one out of a nicer piece of wood. Unfortunately I didn’t have anything too interesting on hand other than some pen blanks. I laminated a thin piece of ebony between two blanks of maple burl to get the width I needed and here is the result. The marking blade was made from a small piece of O1 tool steel and heat treated to rc 60-62. All brass hardware except tiny screws were from lowes and the brass inlay and tiny screws from a hobby shop.
