I’ve been thinking of making marking knives for a few years. I first saw some similar to this on Derek Cohen’s sight called “In the Workshop.” It can be viewed at http://www.inthewoodshop.com/ I really liked his shop made knives. He has made lots of other great tools as well. I was really inspired a few weeks ago when Lumber Jock WilcoFlier posted some marking knives he had made. One is made of lacewood and the other is cherry. The ferules are brass and the cutters were cut and ground from a reciprocating saw blade. The blades are typically made from jig saw blades, but I didn’t find any in the shop, so I just cut a reciprocating saw blade with an angle grinder. The turned handles are both approximately 6” long. Both are finished like turned pens with sanding sealer, EEE wax, friction polish, and Renaissance Wax. Thanks to WilcoFlier for anwering my questions.
