★ ★ ★ ★ ★My first Draw Knife
I recently purchased the HK 205 mm (8.07") Draw knife in preparation for a carving class I'm taking in November. My purchase was based on numerous I-Net searches and recommendations by respected Woodworkers and Artisans. Maurice has been enormously helpful and supportive. Many thanks!
As I told Maurice, when the HK Draw Knife arrived it was extremely sharp. After half a dozen strokes on a green Oxide infused strop, it's now crazy sharp.
The Draw Knife came with an ingenious wood blade protector (sheath) and leather strap attachment. As long as I don't lose it, chances are it will outlast me. Nicely figured wooden handles on each end, comfortable and solidly attached with a threaded nut. Everything about this Draw Knife shouts quality. The hand-forged blade is nicely profiled and as I mentioned, very sharp out of the box.
I haven't had a chance to use it, yet. However, if form follows function, it will do the job well. I can't wait to use it to profile a bowl.
Thanks for taking the time to read this.
