Very good

This marking knife is one of the best i have ever used very sharp lovely to use

excellent knife

Good steel, takes a viscious edge. Looks like it won't be comfortable to use, but oddly enough it feels natural in the hand despite its shape...
I got this to replace a cheaper knife that lost the tip too easily. This is now my go to marking tool.

I've had mine a year or so, the steel it's made from takes an utterly insane edge - if sharpened correctly it can be used to take individual hairs off the back of your hand! I've never used such quality steel before. This has made me very keen to try getting my hands on some true Japanese chisels of the same type of steel.
The ability to mark left or right edges, left or right handed, with a blade that cuts so finely and easily *and* retains it's edge very well... What more could you ask from a marking knife? Exceedingly simple design and nice feel in use with the textured upper surface.
The only thing to look out for is that if you leave it lying unused in a box or bag for a while make sure it's oiled, as the high carbon steel gets a rusty surface quite easily.

Classic example of 'does what it says'

I've used a Crown marking knife in the past, but it never felt natural to use. This is well balanced and very sharp. It feels easy to hold and due to the straight one-piece shank, you can hold it in your hand as you would a pen, then use it as if drawing a line. A pleasure to use.

For those interested, blade is 3 mm thick, so for very fine dovetails, perhaps the Veritas Striking Knife would be a better (albeit somewhat delicate) choice.
For my purposes, an ideal choice.- sturdy, thin enough, takes a wicked edge, marks both ways.
