10 inch STRAIGHT BLADE DRAW KNIFE

Cutting edge of the blade is approximately 10 inches long and 1 3/8 inches wide.  The handles are crafted from select european hardwood. The tangs extend all the way through the handles for an extremely durable attachment. A drawknife is a woodworking tool used to shape wood by removing shavings. It consists of a blade that is much longer (along the cutting edge) than it is deep (from cutting edge to back edge, and a handle at either end. A variety of ancient trades including chairmaker, cooper,and wheelright depend on good drawknives. The drawknife is especially helpful in the log house building and rustic furniture industries. The drawknife is usually pulled towards the user, with the sharp edge of the blade facing the user. The drawknife can be used to remove large slices of wood, or can shave like a plane. The small depth of the blade means that it can be used to create concave or convex curves. Oxhead is synonymous with the highest marks of quality. The company trade mark Ochsenkopf, or Oxhead, is one of the oldest in the tool industry.  It is listed in the Remscheid roll of trade the marks on June 2, 1781. Ochsenkopf was originally founded in Wuppertal, and have been produced by Dako Werk Dowidat KG in Remscheid, the best-known “tool city” in Germany. Highest quality of the tools is certified by the FPA test mark (KWF-Gebrauchswert / utility-value, KWF-Test) and the VPA test mark (GS VPA). The proven ROTBAND-PLUS-system is also used. Ochsenkopf is consistently setting new standards of precision and reliability.

A draw knife cuts like a very broad knife or chisel, usually, but not always with the grain of the wood.   The tool is used with both hands to maximize the human strength which is put into its operation.  Often, it is better to move the tool sideways as it is drawn toward you, to facilitate the cutting action.  Reversing the direction of the cut altogether can restore precision control to a wayward cut.   It can be drawn smoothly, for an even type of cut; or aggressively, for hogging out lots of softer wood quickly.  The draw knife can be used with the bevel, or against the bevel, depending entirely upon which cutting angle suits the purpose.  The basic difference between curved and straight blade is the position of the handles, with the curved blade models placing the hands at a higher angle and farther away from the cutting surface.   Some craftsmen find this more suitable to aggressive cutting.
