Veritas workshop striking knife Like pencils, there never seems to be a striking knife at hand when you need it. Veritas has produced this high-quality, well-priced knife so you can affordably leave several around your shop.

The knife has an A2 tool-steel blade with a 55° included angle at the tip. Ground to a keen edge at a 25° bevel angle, it slices wood fibers cleanly. It leaves an incised marking line that serves to guide a saw or chisel when starting a cut, helping to improve accuracy.

At less than 0.8 mm (1/32 inch) thick and 8 mm (5/16 inch) wide, the blade projects about 38 mm (1-1/2 inch) from the handle, making it particularly useful for the precise transfer work required for dovetail layouts. The dual bevel makes it equally comfortable for right- or left-hand use, or marking either side of a reference surface.

The nylon-reinforced ABS handle is contoured for a comfortable, controlled grip, with flats on the sides to provide tactile cues for blade orientation and finger placement. They also prevent the knife from rolling on a surface. Supplied with a guard to protect the tip in storage. 168 mm (6-5/8 inch) long overall.

Made in Canada. Excellent value in what should be a shop staple.

Narex marking knives

Narex offers a wide and a narrow marking knife. The wide blade is easier and safer for using with a ruler, the narrow blade is more for finer detail work such as marking dovetails. The symmetrical bevel arrangement means this knife can be used equally well by righthanders and lefthanders. The beech handle is stained and finished with a matt varnish.
