Straight draw shave tools, sometimes known as drawknives, are versatile edge tools that are common in a lot of hand-cutting projects that require more finesse than power tools can provide. Unlike other knives that cut down or saw back and forth, a drawknife is pulled toward the body. The combination of a rigid blade and comfortable handle is stable enough to handle delicate cutting tasks such as cutting heavy timber, stripping bark, and even basic wood sculpting. The ergonomics and sharpness of the blade are two important qualities in a good draw shave tool. A dull knife with a poor design will only prolong the project and delay the final result.
