The bigger brother of the damascus drawknife family. A beautiful straight Drawknife made from damascus steel that elegantly balances functionality and aesthetics. The soft damascus backing increases edge retention and gives the tool a supple flexibility. The spine retains full thickness to provide backbone and is separated with a fullered groove from the thinner hammered bevel area. For all fine to mid-range duty work.
The swedish steel (uddeholm) can hold a scarily sharp edge and make this an ideal finisher of greenwood and companion for fine works. Used properly it leaves a natural sheen that requires no further sanding. Think of it as a freehand finishing plane for the shaving horse or bench vise.
Blade is forged on a charcoal forge and handles are turned on a pole lathe from local hardwood (type depending on seasonal stock) with hammered ferrules from copper.
Blade is delivered sharp and with proper geometry, only some further honing recommended.
Blade is 14 (6") cm long and 1,6 (3/4") cm broad. Total 42 (16") cm long.
Made to order.
