This is my companion marking knife I made this afternoon .
Made from the same walnut and birch as the awl so they match .
The blade is made from an air nailer driver blade (see pic 5 ) that was discarded but makes a excellent knife blade ,hold a edge nicely .
The blade is set into a dado in one halve only which I cut before laminating the two halves and offsets the blade sightly to the flat side .
Finish is wipe on poly and buffed on the spindle sander with a paint roller sleeve and buffing compound .
That was a good day in the shop and makes the set complete and ready to use .
