Make them? No. They would turn a hobby into work. Making tools is just a quick fix interest between building furniture, the pieces of which generally take some months. I only get into the shop on weekends, so time is limited.

After making marking knives for a few years, I handed over my design to Chris Vesper. I would like to say that he makes an exact copy, but he makes them better! :) Here’s a link to Chris’ website (with the best marking knives in the world! ... and, no, I do not have any financial interest) ...

If you want to make your own, go here … http://www.inthewoodshop.com/ShopMadeTools/A%20Knife%20for%20Marking%20Dovetails.html

The point is, I make tools and am happy to share the designs with everyone. That’s what it is all about.
