Razor-fine layout lines

Score don't mark

Does it make sense to measure to 1/64", and then mark a line with a pencil point that's twice that width? Even a fine mechanical pencil proves no match for the precision of a marking knife. Here's what you need to know before buying one.

We show a dedicated marking knife in these photos, but you can, in most cases, get good results using a utility or craft knife. However, beware that those knives' thin blades might flex and stray from your intended layout.
