About the Gransfors Bruk Big Drawknife #486

Gransfors Bruk Big Drawknife #486

The Gränsfors Swedish Draw Knife is forged into an arch and is meant to be used with both hands for optimum effectiveness. The Draw Knife is mainly for debarking and shaping logs, and perhaps also dowels. The protruding handles allow the user to get plenty of power behind each stroke. It is important to put your whole body into the action, rather than just using your arms. The knife glides over the timber, with the angle adjusted by hand for the desired planing effect. The Draw Knife can also be angled more sharply for more of a cutting action.

#486  Handforged by Gransfors Bruk – Big Drawknife.
