Today I finished one of my latest projects; a small draw knife. The (O1) steel part is made from a leftover from my chisel project. Its heat treated by a professional heat treatment company. The handles are made from padouk wood with brass ferrules. The rough the outer dimensions are 10” (260mm) by 3” (75mm). Its very, very sharp (don’t ask how I know this ;-)) and works well. It was a very nice project!

Nice looking homemade tool. Looks like something you will get many years of good use out of. Nice work

Wow, that’s amazing. I’ve never even thought about making a drawknife before.
