Narex Dual Bevel Marking Knife Stainless Steel Blade Rosewood Handle Finger Indents
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 is made by Narex, a world-class edge tool manufacturer in the Czech Republic.
These blades are made from AISI 420 corrosion resistant stainless steel and hardened and tempered to HRC 57. The blades are 1-7/8 inches long, 1/2 inch wide and come in 3 thicknesses, 0.030", 0.060" and 0.100 inch thick. Blades have a dual-bevel spear point tip. The tips are 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 blades are the perfect tool to make marks in narrow recesses such as when transferring pins/tails marks during dovetailing. The dual bevels will mark distinct lines on both the right and left side of a part or guide. They will leave crisp lines when marking with and against the grain and on end grain. These knives may require just a light stropping to remove a small wire edge to get them razor sharp and ready to use. The handles are 3/8-inch-thick and made from Mexican Rosewood which have been hand sanded and polished. The scales are attached to the blade via two brass pins. The handles make the perfect size for a nimble yet stout marking knife. The square handle profile prevents these knives from rolling off the bench.
