Who says you can’t find great deals on eBay anymore!! This lovely marking knife only cost me $29 delivered to my door step. It’s 7″ long by 1/2″ in diameter at the finger grip, and made from genuine Middle-Eastern olive wood. The blade is made of O-1 tool steel that has been hardened, tempered, and then sharpened to a 55 degree included angle with 20 degree bevels. After 15 minutes of honing on my water stones, the blade was sharp enough to shave with. This knife will probably last me a life time, but at some point in the future I want to try my hand at making one.
