Description

Ray Iles DRAWKNIFE 8 1/2″ is a medium size drawknife suited to most general greenwoodworking duties.

Typically used to prepare billets for the pole lathe or shaving components down for riven gates.

Normally used with a shavehorse or other holding device.

Good control is possible with this straight forward drawknife, use it bevel down. The handles are cranked slightly out for extra clearance.

We like this one very much and use them on our greenwoodworking courses.

Edge length 220mm (8 1/2″), made from 01 high carbon tool steel, the lightly oiled handles are 100mm (4″) long with brass ferrules. These build up a very pleasing patina with use.

The bevel is ground to about 30 degrees and slightly hollow ground therefore will need a final hone before use.  This is something you can do yourself with a finer grit stone but if you want us to do this for you select the optional ‘WORKSHOP SERVICE – Honing’ above.

One of our sheaths in either thick leather or wood are optional but highly recommended to keep the cutting edge in good condition when not in use.  Specially made by WOODSMITH.

Ray Iles DRAWKNIFE 8 1/2″ is made in the UK by one of the countries most respected tool makers.
