    Ever since borrowing Rob's marking knife in Calgary (many many times) I've carried a photo of it in my phone. I've searched the internet for an old Stanley 29-109. I've waited (somewhat) patiently for Rob to introduce his own.

    Rob's arrived today!!

    So far, I like it better than his old Stanley.

    I'm a happy kid (errr old guy).

    Mine knife arrived today as well. I like the weight, the feel as it registers in my hand, and most of all the cut and bend-ability of the blade. Very Nice. Rob what's next?

    If we can vote on what's next...I'd like the dovetail chisel and then panel saws. I have every tool Rob makes except for the drawer bottom plane, so I need him to get some new tools going!

    I, for one, would be interested in buying a dovetail chisel like the one you reground, Rob.  I've been looking to get one commercially for some time now.  Yes I could devote some of what little shop time I get to mastering grinding well enough to turn out something like that but I'd rather be working with wood and leave that to someone who can do it far quicker than myself.

    You chisel has been the topic of more than one discussion on SMC.

    Yes, I know it would have to be expensive since someone would likely buy someone elses tool (such as L-N) and then regrind it, but it seems like there'd be a niche market out there for special orders or a limited inventory business.

    As it is woodworkers are "going GAGA" over the $200 Knew Concepts titanium fret saw for it's rigidity; there's even been enough demand for a high-end handle for it that Elkhead Tools is offering a $75 aftermarket Coco handle on their web site.  It sure seems to me there'd be a similar market for a specialty chisel, especially if it was a Cocobolo L-N since they're only used for paring.  Hmm..
