This is the marking knife I built today because an exacto knife just wasn’t cutting it ( pardon the pun). The handle is turned from king wood with a brass ferrule that I turned on the mettle lathe at my school. And the blade cam from a dull utility knife blade that I belt sanded down to the right size. It was a fun quick project and I’m thinking of doing a few more just for fun and maybe do a blog on how I did it if you guys want.

Nice knife, I think a blog on this is a very good idea.

Looks great, like the grains on the wood. Can’t beat making own tools.

Have your say...
