Drawknives are a great way to get rid of a lot of material quickly. If you do a lot of curved work in solid wood, you probably use a drawknife for speed all the time. Among chair makers, it�s the tool of choice for rapidly making spindles, stretchers, and all the long straight parts of a chair.
These drawknives are made of traditional carbon steel for the sharpest, easiest to maintain edge. The handles of the two regular drawknives are of air dried English beech, finished in linseed oil for long wear and a good grip. The "Gents" drawknife in the foreground has boxwood handles which are splayed out more than the regular drawknives.
Ground sharp but final honing is required for the best edge. Made in England.
