Down and Dirty Marking Knife and Awl

Just a simple awl/center punch and marking knife. The point on the awl is made from a tapered set pin sharpened to a point and the handle is Oak and Padouk.

The marking knife is Padouk and a piece of a cheap hand plane blade. Nothing fancy but they get the job done.

Thanks for looking :-)

Nice work. Did you just epoxy the blade into the marking knife handle?

Yeah it’s wedged in there real tight with some 2 part epoxy holding it in. I’ll see how it holds up but so far it is in there nice and tight.

I didn’t epoxy the one I made, but the A2 steel blade is in a groove, and then I put 2 brass pins through it.

Love the padouk you used. Should be fun to use

Thanks guys!

Mos I had thought about riveting it into place but decided to employ the K.I.S.S. method to this.

Mauricio I just cast my vote for the next swap project :D
