Swedish Drawknife
Regular price $339.00 AUD $0.00 AUD

{Description}

The Draw Knife is mainly used for debarking and shaping logs. The curved blade and protruding handles allow the user to get plenty of power behind each stroke. It is important to use your legs and core in the pulling action, not just your arms. The knife glides over the timber, with the angle adjusted by hand for the desired planing depth.

{Information}Care Instructions

Axes should be kept in a dry place, but not so dry or warm that the handle risks shrinking in the axe head. Make sure that the axe head and sheath are not wet when you put on the sheath. Oil the axe head before the axe is put away for some time. An un-oiled axe head may rust. We recommend oiling the head with camellia oil. All axes from Gransfors Bruk come with properly dried handles. Handles need to be maintained. Oil handles for a protective coat against heat and water. Unoiled handles may cause the handle to crack and weaken. We recommend oiling the handle with boiled linseed oil. Frequency depends on conditions. At the very least oil the handle once a year. Please contact us if a replacement handle or sheath is required.
