Re: [MedievalSawdust] Draw knives - What should a rookie use?
- I have several draw knives I have picked up cheap in flea markets and antique stores, and they're ok. But my favorite is a little jewel I ordered from Cape Forge. The craftmanship is excellent, and it has a narrower blade than any other I have - making it great for concave curves, such as where the handle and bowl meet on a spoon.Hroþgar FiscabanaBarony of Small Gray BearGleann Abhann-----Original Message-----
OK, so I've been lurking and oogling and drooling over everybody
else's projects and the time has come. What would be a good first
draw knife for me to suggest my wife buy me as a "wood" anniversary
gift? I live in HAwaii, so it will probably have to be a mail order
purchase. Any recommendations on companies?
What would be a good Eastern European/slavic/ germanic hardwood
comparable to koa? Any guesses?
This is a great group. Lots of fun, beautiful workmanship, and nice
people. Thank you for that.
Mahalo and aloha.
