The Marking Knife is one of those little known tools amongst woodworkers, timber framers and furniture builders. It is used for scoring a line on wood along a square. The single bevel enables the user to put a flat edge up against the square to ensure accuracy. A regular knife is double bevel so that when you set your blade up against your square the cutting edge is set off from the square.
This particular marking knife is hand-specific so be sure to select a right-handed knife if you are right-handed or a left-handed knife if you are left-handed. Also note that the sheath is designed to slide onto the blade one way and not the other so do not force the sheath onto the blade.
Overall Length including Sheath: 7-1/2-in
Blade Length: 3-in
Overall Length without the Sheath: 6-1/2-in
