I made this walnut and maple marking knife discussed in the excellent book, Tool-Making Projects for Joinery and Woodworking, by Steve A. Olesin. The blade was cut out of an old table saw circular blade. His version just had the knife and handle. I added the cap. There is a rare earth magnet within the cap that keeps the cap on.
While I could get it sharper, I’ve already “marked” myself on the blade three times (this most recent time taking photos for you knot-heads!), and I haven’t even used the knife, yet.
I highly recommend the book to other beginners. I’m having great fun following along in his footsteps and am learning a lot.
