3/8" Marking Knife

homemade marking knife

I got this idea from Woodworking Magazine. I highly recommend the magazine and this project. I made a marking knife by just grinding down a 38” spade bit on my belt grinder. Finish up by hand on your regular sharpening setup and you have a marking knife.

It was inexpensive, easy to do, and works great.
