I had a leftover piece of metal from my gunstock carve, so I decided to make a marking knife. I have been using a box cutter as a marking knife but figured it was time to upgrade.
The handle is made from cherry with a few pieces of walnut veneer sandwiched between. I finished it with a couple coats of tung oil and kept it together with a couple of brass rivets. Unfortunately the rivets aren’t centred because I used existing holes and didn’t cut the metal very straight or centred on the holes.
I’ve been using this for almost a week and I love it, way easier to hold and mark than with the box cutter.
