iGaging Premium Precision Striking/Marking Knife
A marking knife should be part of every woodworkers base set of tools, a marking knife cuts lines that are about 1/10th as wide as a sharp pencil line – when you need to “cut to the line”, a sharper line produces more accurate parts. Unlike knives designed for cutting, a striking/marking knife blade is flat on one side and beveled on the opposite face. The flat back is drawn across the end of a board or along the blade of a square to perfectly mark its edge on a piece of wood. This is a huge time saver in situations where you need to cut a part to length to match something else – trimming a piece of molding or edge trim to match the width of a cabinet, for example. The 1.5″ hardened HSS steel blade is long enough to reach past wood 1-3/8″ thick, and because the blade is beveled on each edge with the point in the middle, this knife suits either left or right-hand users and can be used to mark from either direction. The hardwood handle is 5″ long and is shaped to allow for a variety of different grips while working.
