Marking, or layout knives, are a staple in any shop. Useful for much more than just laying out dovetails.
Some basic information about my marking knives:
- Overall length is right around 8”
- Handles are 6” long, 1” in diameter at widest point. Ground flat on 2 sides to prevent rolling.
- High Speed Steel blades measuring roughly 2” long and ~5/16” thick.
- Thin and stiff blades help to access tight, hard to reach places.
- Polished copper ferrule.
