Draw Knife - Drawing Knife - Draw Shave - Draft Shave - Shaving Knife

There are many designs of draw knife, many particular to a certain trade (e.g chair maker, cooper, handle maker, gun stock maker, mast maker, carpenter etc) and variations of patterns. The draw knife is used for the removal of excess timber, for rounding off stock and for chamfering, either freehand or in a shave horse,

There are some delightful old draw knives still to be found at boot fairs and specialist sales (but be careful to check that the edge is still good and that back of the blade is not pitted with cleaned out rust). We have a selection here of new draw knives to suit most budgets and size requirements, the newest of which from Forge de Saint Juery (home of Auriou Toolworks in France), who like the Gransfors Bruks Factory in Sweden, hand forge their draw knives.

Auriou 9" Curved Draw Knife
Ref: G064503 11 220 35


Auriou's high quality, hand-forged tools are well known to discerning woodworkers, Famous for their hand stitched rasps and rifflers Auriou are using their small team of highly skilled artisans to produce a small range of tools to balance their portfolio of tools. Launched in autumn 2010 this large, curved-blade draw knife is sure to become a favourite in green woodworking circles.

The 9" long curved blade has a gentle radius and an effective blade angle that gives fast, controlled cutting. Turned 5" French walnut handles with brass ferrules are spaced 13½" apart. There is a slight splay to the handles (about 8 degrees) which makes the action of drawing the knife toward you more comfortable (of course there are dozens of views on this but based on feedback received on their prototypes and the study of old designs Auriou decided this was the best compromise). The draw knife comes honed and ready for use. Weight 0.5 kgs (1.2 lbs).

BenchCrafted Drawsharp
Ref: BC-D


Ease and safety

With the Drawsharp, the cutting edge is facing away from your body and fingers, the honing action is parallel to the blade, and your fingers are safely behind the cutting edge at all times.

If you've shied away from using drawknives because of sharpening, the Drawsharp will open the door to this wonderful tool, whether you’re a chairmaker, or looking to add the drawknife to your furnituremaking tool kit.

How it works

The drawknife spine rides on an acetal wear plate and two nylon bumpers which, along with the position of the two posts, determine the honing angle. One post for honing the knife's bevel, and the other for honing the back.
