Flexcut Draw Knives
Our Draw Knife blades are flexible and razor-sharp. Cuts can be made that conform more closely to the finished shape consequently, taking less time to sand and scrape. Furthermore, they are made in USA.
Flexcut Draw Knives: What is their purpose
A draw knife is commonly used to remove large slices of wood for flat faceted work, to debark trees, or to create roughly rounded or cylindrical billets for further work on a lathe, or it can shave like a spokeshave plane, where finer finishing is less of concern than a rapid result. The thin blade lends itself to create complex concave or convex curves. Unlike a spokeshave, it does not have a closed mouth to control chip formation, and so lacks the spoke-shave’s superior cutting and shaving precision.
They are also a vital piece of equipment in hand-made duck decoys.
