I recently ordered a marking knife kit from Czech Edge. I’m alerting LJ’s to this because it arrived expertly packed, very quickly, and the best part: the components are of shocking quality. Enormously beefy tool steel honed to a deadly edge, a beautiful brass ferrule, and multiple blade protectors. All for the paltry price of around $20 or so. Look them up if you’d like to make your own high quality marking knife. They are highly recommended by me. The photo below is of their current offerings & photo rights go to the company.

They look well made but the marking knives are in the $45 to $50 range. Am I missing something?

You are looking at a finished knife. He was talking about a kit, such as:

^what brtech said. If you’re not looking to make one, I’d say $50 is a steal for the quality of the components. Of course, you’d be paying $30 for a simple turning. Thanks for looking.

Last time I checked, they don’t offer the smallest knife in kit form.

^ I think I noticed that when I ordered. I ordered the largest & will try to take a photo tonight with something common as a reference. It’s definitely a large marking blade.
