Yes, you can mark out your joints with a pocket knife, a craft knife or a sharpened piece of Chevy bumper. But once you’ve tried a well-made marking knife, you’re unlikely to go back to your old ways.

Czeck Edge Hand Tools is one of the newest makers of marking tools in the market, so I purchased two of the company’s knives and a bird cage awl this summer to give them a workout.

All in all, I was impressed. All three tools were finely turned and finished. The steel and brass components were melded seamlessly into the wooden handles. And the steel was very good.
