Drawknives & Froes

Chairmakers Drawknife.


This drawknife is hand forged from high carbon 9260 spring steel. After precise and careful hardening tempering and annealing, the edge reaches Rockwell 60-62 (HRC). Final sharpening is done on a felt disc using chrome oxide compound to give the tool a razor sharp edge. A traditional mixture of beeswax, linseed oil and pine turpentine is used on the steel to provide an anti-rust finish.

The handles are hand lathed elm that are tightly fitted onto the tangs of the steel and glued in with an epoxy glue. Each set of drawknife handles are made individually to fit the dimensions of the tang precisely. The handles are also treated with linseed oil and beeswax. Each drawknife comes with a handmade, custom dyed saddle tan leather blade guard.
