Draw knife

Draw knife This is one of the most versatile of all woodworking tools. The handles that you use to pull the knife down the surface also give you precise control over the angle of the blade, allowing you to cut as deeply or evenly as you wish. The drawknife often takes a middle role in creation of a shape, first the piece is chopped, then drawknifed, then planed to the final smoothness.
