This is my second shopmade marking knife. The first one http://lumberjocks.com/projects/82354 works great except when you need to park in a small space (i.e. marking dovetails etc..) and I have been putting off making a new one for some time now.
Well, this morning the blade separated it’s self from the handle and that was the push I needed to get on with making that new knife I needed.
The blade was cut with a hacksaw from a block plane blade that was beyond useful for a black plane but works for other blades.
Bevel was made freehand (no clue what angle it is) on my new DMT’s.
Handle is walnut shaped with a spokeshave, rasps and sandpaper. Finished up with a brass tube.
Finish is 3.2.1 and paste wax.
Thanks for looking!
