Several years ago I purchased a spear point marking knife from Harbor Freight for 4 bucks. I used the marking knife all the time as it has a sharp angle to get into tight corners &, being spear point, it’s “ambidextrous”. It also has a rosewood handle. For probably being made in China it’s a Great Tool! Then one day I swept it up & tossed it out accidentally. I searched Harbor Freight’s site & found that they had discontinued the tool. After a search of various woodworking sites I finally found this marking knife at ””The Japan Woodworker” for $7.45. That’s pretty inexpensive for a tool from the Japan Woodworker. But being frugal… OK cheap… I held off on purchasing the knife because the shipping of $8.25 was higher than the tool cost. Finally Friday I recieved an e-mail that there was to be free shipping on any purchase at the Japan Woodworker… So I ordered three of the marking knives. You might wish to sign up for e-mail messages on deals from the Japan Woodworker & check out the spear point marking knife & their other items too. They have some nice sounding tools but most of their tools have higher prices to go with them too!
