The Marking Knife is used on cross grain for marking tenon shoulders or the lengths of mortices. (The knife mark helps to guide the Dozuki saw or chisel blade when starting the cut.) A pencil line is not accurate for this work and is uneven from beginning to end.

This tool is similar to the regular Japanese knife, except that the angle of the cutting edge is much greater in order to mark instead of cut.
