Today I finished this marking knife. I always wanted a good marking knife, but I dont like the cheap, standard knifes. I wanted a special one, therefore I decided to make one myself.
The steel is special springsteel, grinded in the right form on a benchgrinder, sharpened on a beltsander and polished bij hand. The brass parts I filed in the right form on a woodturning lathe, then polished with 1200# sandpaper. That works great!
Te wood is a piece of plum, with a nice contrast between de sap and heartwood, sanded to 1200 grit, polished with Shellawax and then lacquered.
It was a very fun project, and the knife performs well!
