Marking knives need to hold an edge well, be stiff enough not to flex, and they must be narrow enough to fit into confined areas such as dovetails. CTW marking knives are made from 1/16" thick precision ground O-1 tool steel and are 1/4" wide. The blades are individually hardened to Rockwell C 62-63 so they will hold an edge and they are shipped honed and ready to use. I feel that tools should be ready to go and should not be sold as a "kit". Knives are roughly 7 1/2 " long overall and are shaped in what I call a pencil form. Everyone uses pencils and pens and you should immediately feel comfortable holding and using this knife. A fine tool for the serious hand tool user, they are available in the wood choices show below. Custom wood and blade choices are available on special order.
