Here’s marking knife I made for my son who has shown some interest in cutting dovetails. I cut the blade from an old planer knife and the handle is walnut. The second pic shows my old one that I built out of a jig saw blade. The new one has better balance and of course no flex. Since I don’t have a wood lathe I had to shape it “conventionally”. The shape is comfortable and doesn’t roll of the bench. Now we’ll have to put it to work.
