    This marking gage is solid. Feels great in the hand. Wish the markings were colored but it’s a nice unit.

    Hefty Tool

    Love the weight of this marking gauge and its solid feel. But the markings are quite difficult to read. The reflections of light on the metal interferes with the black markings.

    So great

    I’m always looking for things that still at least FEEL like they’re made well..b/c not much actually is these days. This marking gauge is. It’s got a great weight to it. It feels substantial. Not too heavy. But it feels as heavy as you’d expect considering it’s made of brass. Accurate too. & I like the micro-adjust twist knob. Very helpful. I knew nothing about marking knives or gauges before watching this channel, but consider me a convert.

    What's not to like about brass?

    Beautiful to hold and behold. I actually spent hours at first just fidgeting with it for the sheer pleasure and in order to get properly acquainted with it. I even bragged about it my anthropology class ("Body, Craft and Technology") and let students handle it and guess what it was. While fidgeting with it, I felt the edge of the cutter to be a little rough, especially as compared with my Veritas Micro-Adjust marking gauge. Veritas is very sharp and cuts beautifully but the line it leaves is too fine for me to see. This one makes a satisfyingly deep and visible line. Since I often like to enhance its visibility by running a 0.5 mechanical pencil through it, this gauge has a real advantage over Veritas. I can just put the pencil in the groove and follow it freehand. The tip will stay in the groove. Veritas gauge makes too fine a line for that. So far, I haven't felt the need to use the micro-adjust feature and I think it will take some time to get used to it. All in all, I think it is a both very practical, efficient, solid and well-designed as well as beautiful to (be)hold.
