Draw Knives

One of my favorite tools and one I have seen misused by too may people over the years.  Often these are snatched up at auctions by antiquey people who want a wall hanging but quality ones can be found on places like Ebay.  I have several styles and they each have their virtues.

DrawknivesMy carriage maker model gets all the heavy work where the carpenter’s razor gets the other 80%.  And let’s not forget the humble but beautiful cabinet scraper.
