Drawknives are a traditional woodworking hand tool used for the removal of excess timber, for rounding off stock and for chamfering, either freehand or in a shave horse. Drawknives consist of a blade with a handle at each end. The blade is much longer than it is deep. It is pulled or “drawn” toward the user.
