Your hand-cut joinery will take a huge leap forward when you stop marking with a pencil and start marking with a single bevel marking knife. A pencil line gives you nothing but a target. A marking knife gives you a physical impression in the wood which guides your saw or chisel. Our Classic Marking Knife features a comfortable contoured handle with an .032" blade held firmly in the handle by a tool-less collet system. If you’re in the middle of a project and need a fresh edge, you can quickly change blades and do all your sharpening later.
The spear-point blade design works equally well with the reference on the right or left…just flip the knife over to place the flat side against your square or straight-edge. The bevel steers the blade along the reference for perfect placement of your mark.
The Classic Marking Knife comes in your choice of Curly Maple, African Blackwood or Cocobolo handles with either a polished stainless steel or black ceramic-coated ferrule. In addition to the standard .032" blade and collet, the entire range of Blue Spruce Toolworks Marking System blades and collets works with the handle.
Add the two-pack of extra blades and you’ll always have a fresh edge ready for that critical layout.
