Quite some time back, I made a bid on a bunch of drawknife on E-bay, from the bunch this was the one I wanted and so I offered Dennis to get the rest at a good price.
I have a lot of drawknife’s and tried different handles one of my favourites are the egg handles.
Since this knife will be used for shaping, I thought the egg handles were just perfect for it.
While I was playing I also made Dennis two sets, so he could get going when he got his, he was at my house last year to pick them up, these days we are many that are asking; Dennis where are you?.
1. The drawknife with new handles.
2. Before, a fun detail was the one old handle was made from a horn material.
3. Turning eggs from recycled wood.
5. Making Dennis’ handles.
6. Tataaaa (he was happy).
Made also a blog about the subject some time back:
Hope it can inspire to bring new life to old tools and give gift to friends.
