DIY Woodworking Marking Knife

DIY Woodworking Marking Knife

Today we are making a couple DIY woodworking marking knives. My son has been wanting to try metal working and blacksmithing for a while and I thought a great first project for him would be to make a marking knife. This project can be with minimum tools and can be completed in a weekend. We used 1/16th" O1 tool steel for our marking knives since enough steel to make about 6 of these knives was around $20.

Here is a link to the steel we used (Affiliate) https://amzn.to/2Qzm83K

You could also use an old saw blade if you wanted. In the video we shape the knife with a hack saw, sander and some hand files. We harden the metal with a couple propane torches and anneal it in a kitchen oven. This is truly an easy beginner bladesmith or knife making project and we had a great time making them. Thanks for watching!
