Japanese Marking & Veneer Knife  ::  2014 Visiting friends in Munich last week, I bought a knife at Dictum.  When woodworking as a day job, you need a knife in your pouch – your fingernails only last so long & grow so quickly. This knife will go in my tool pouch for general use & will require a sheath.  The cherry block has a dado straight through, with a walnut pin that stops the blade.   The dado has to open at both ends – this allows dust to be pushed out the bottom every time I put the knife in the top.  It’s finished it with beeswax polish. The Japanese steel is simply beautiful to look at & holds an edge well.  The handle & blade are the same steel, this seats in the hand comfortably.   Am looking forward to using this on a daily basis.
