Here is a marking knife that I have made. It was salvaged from an old rusty chisel. The tang was filed down a little. I drilled a pilot hole and sequence through vaires sizes bit (about 3-4 sizes) to create the tapper for the chisel to go into. I turned the walnut blank. A little bit epoxy was used to secure the blade in place.

It was hand sharpen on the grinder. Set the tool rest horizontally and do the main angle first. The tip should be about the center-line along the chisel. So both angle edges should be even. I didn’t measure anything. Then adjust the tool rest angle to match the bevel that you want on the chisel. Just eyeball it. I then complete the grind/shapening with wet stones.

I already had too many small chisels. I thought it was a good way of finding it a new purpose.

Great job. I really like home made tools. Made a couple myself. Great satisfaction in making them.
