Mikov Super Thin Blade Dual Bevel Marking Knife 0.030" Thick Blade with Finger Indents Rosewood Handle
A marking knife is an invaluable tool that should be in the toolbox of every woodworker. A good marking knife can produce crisp and well-defined marks on wood essential when laying out precision joinery or transferring measurements. Scribe lines left by a marking knife can also locate and guide chisels and saws. This Dual Bevel Spear Point marking knife was made by Mikov a world-class Czech knife maker. Mikov is currently the largest knife maker in the Czech Republic and has been making knives since 1794. Mikov makes a wide range of pocket, folding, fixed blade, hunting, sport, kitchen, and specialty knives. Mikov is best known for making high-quality everyday knives using premium materials for very affordable prices. This marking knife is no exception.
The blade is made from AISI 420 corrosion resistant stainless steel and hardened and tempered to HRC 57. This is the same steel used in many of Mikov’s kitchen knives and is designed to take and hold a keen edge resist corrosion. The blade is 1-7/8 inches long, 1/2-inch-wide and 0.030 inch thick. The blade has a dual-bevel spear point tip. The tip is ground to 55 degrees with a 25-degree grind on both bevels. The bevels are precision ground on CNC machines. The laser cut finger indents are useful for applying pressure closer to the tip. The blade is the perfect tool to make marks in narrow recesses such as when transferring pins/tails marks during dovetailing. The dual bevel will mark distinct lines on both the right and left side of a part or guide. It will leave crisp lines when marking with and against the grain and on end grain. The knife may require just a light stropping to remove a small wire edge to get it razor sharp and ready to use. The handle is 3/8-inch-thick and made from Mexican Rosewood which has been hand sanded and polished. The scales are attached to the blade via two brass pins. The handle makes the perfect size for a nimble yet stout marking knife. The square handle profile prevents the knife from rolling off the bench.
