I have 5 old drawknives that are excellent users. I found them throughout New England in the 70’s – 80’s. I selected them based on their usability for windsor chairmaking. Many of the new drawknives (and many of the old ones that are too worn), are not all that user friendly. These are all good.

The better ones go for $100-180 on Ebay. I’m asking $70 + shipping for each.

You have some great looking projects, if these helped you make ‘em they must be good tools!

Thank you Mark. I used to have a business making Windsor chairs. I am selling a lot of those tools since I no longer use them. Many of the tools used for windsors are essentially unchanged from the 18th century originals because there have been no improvements over the originals (which developed over centuries).

PS – I am flexible on price. They are all 18th – 19th century tools but all are great users.
