Handmade in Sheffield by Joseph Marples exclusively for us, this 1:6 dovetail marker is made of beech with a brass face and blued steel blade secured with three brass rivets.

Used for laying out dovetail joinery, the 1:6 ratio produces a stronger but perhaps less elegant joint than the 1:8 version. Often preferred for use on softer timbers, the 1:6 ratio is also good for concealed dovetails where strength is the only consideration.

Hand finished with Peacock Oil
