A Striking Knife is a very traditional tool used by woodworker's for decades to mark-out cut lines on a board. It was probably developed in England but the origin of who by and when is lost in the mists of time.

One side of the blade is dead flat and rides snugly against whatever reference you are using as a guide (for example, a steel rule) and the other side is beveled evenly to the center from both edges of the tool. This design allows you to move the sharp knife tip smoothly in either direction without lifting it from the surface - a great aid to accurate work.

Every woodworker, whether casual or professional, should have this in his or her toolbox.

Striker Knife
Reviewed By:   (Saint Charles, Missouri) 
This striking knife has taken the doubt out of marking wood accurately rather than relying on a pencil that gets duller as I draw a line. An excellent tool and very good quality. Will last a long time, and save me from guessing on my cuts. Love it!

Sharper Then a Pencil Line
Reviewed By:   (Honolulu, Hawaii) 
Better then a pencil for striking a straight line on wood. Long 6" wooden handle and blade that looks like it will hold it's sharpness for a long time. A pencil line varies in thickness but this scribe leaves a line on the wood consistently less then 1/32 of an inch. Also handy to have in the tool pouch but be careful and secure the blade to prevent an accident.

Needed deburring
Reviewed By:   (Sarasota, Florida) 
The knife tip needed to be deburred as the metal on the tip was rough. A quick cleanup was all that was needed to fix the problem. Subsequently, I have used the knife. Nice balance and weight. The handle is chamfered so it does not roll off the bench. If you are meticulous, as I am, I recommend this knife. I am sure you will find it to be indispensable in your workshop.

Response By: Garrett Wade Tech Department
We checked our stock and David is correct on 2 counts. (1) there are some very fine burrs left from the bevel grind and (2) if you are meticulous you will take the few minuets to clean them up. We tried the tool before and after the clean up. To be honest it was pretty hard to tell the difference in the line struck after the clean up. But we agree the few minutes it takes to clean up the burrs is worth it. Our clean up was simple and straight forward. We took a piece of 400 grit paper (PSA) on glass. 3 quick swipes on each bevel and 3 on the flat back and the burrs were gone.
