Big Draw Knife
The Gränsfors Big Draw Knife is forged into an arch and is meant to be used with both hands for optimum effectiveness. The Big Draw Knife is mainly for debarking and shaping logs, and perhaps also dowels. The protruding handles allow the user to get plenty of power behind each stroke. It is important to put your whole body into the action, rather than just using your arms. The knife glides over the timber, with the angle adjusted by hand for the desired planeing effect. The Draw Knife can also be angled more sharply for more of a cutting action.
Due to the way in which the Big Draw Knife is forged, it does not contain the blacksmiths initials.
