My problem is that the blade wanders off the straight edge at least half the time. I've tried cutting using the entire blade and I've tried just using the tip. I've pressed firmly, lightly and in between. I've used multiple types of straight edges. I sharpened the blade until it cleanly shaved arm hair. Is it a problem of (my) technique, quality or engineering? If I'm doing something wrong, I'd love to hear it. Until then, I can't depend on this to mark a single straight line. I have to make multiple marks, and I end up with one straight mark and one or more slightly off to the side. It is frustrating. I end up turning to my scratch awl, even across the grain, because it at least marks accurately - more like a pencil.
Though this doesn't always work, marking *very* lightly at first and deepening the cut helps keep things straight.
In the mean time, I'm going to do some research. If it turns out I'm a total idiot, I will update my review and score. It really is an attractive and well-balanced knife. My only other problems with it are that it came pretty dull and seems to dull easily - a problem I've heard about other Narex products as well. My Stanley A2 steel chisels can go through an entire project of heavy use before needing a quick strop, while this marking knife marks like 8-10 light cuts and already needs to go to the water stone.
The knife itself comes dull as a turd, which is to be expected from most blades. The 58rc seems about right, as it took my 20-30 minutes to bring this to a mirror polish on the cutting edge using a wet stone.
The handle is not sloppily lacquered, and you can still feel the wood which is nice. The handle having edges means this striking knife never rolls away, which is very nice.
I don't hesitate recommending this product.
