Drawknives

Straight Micro-Drawknife      
DK-1   1.25" blade   9" overall   $69      (discontinued) Small picture of draw knife, hand forged wood working tool by North Bay Forge. A fine wood carving tool for removing wood quickly. 
	Great for furniture carving, carving musical instruments (necks of guitars), boat spars, wood carving with a shaving horse. The compact design allows access to tight areas with terrific control. With both hands so 
	close to the blade, these offer the most control and power possible. The forged handles are cupped to contour
	to the hands with small forged finger hooks on the ends to ensure positive grips. Because the blade is only 
	1.5 inches long, this is not a tool to use on pieces of wood wider than about 3 inches.

   
Medium Drawknife
DK-M   3 1/2" blade      handles are Yew     15" overall     $175      (discontinued) Small picture of draw knife, hand forged wood working tool by North Bay Forge. A fine wood carving tool for removing wood quickly.
	Great for furniture carving, carving musical instruments (necks of guitars), boat spars, wood carving with a shaving horse.
This drawknife is not for everyone. The bevel is almost as fine as my carving knives. I don't recommend using it to remove bark from trees, especially with dirt from being drug on the ground. A rougher drawknife with a blunter bevel works better for that anyway.
This shows the back (bottom) of the blade. Although it is quite wide, it is rounded a little so that it has good control in making the cut continue shallower or deeper. (The ruler was made in Japan, the drawknife was made in the US.)

My carving knives are intended for serious wood carvers. They are razor sharp and can be very dangerous if used improperly. Please be careful and don't allow young people to use them unsupervised.

Your satisfaction is fully guaranteed. If you have a problem of any kind with one of my knives, please let me know. I will make it right with you.
