About the Drawknife
A restored vintage drawknife by Cornelius Whitehouse & Sons of Sheffield offering a razor sharp edge which will be easy to maintain  

The edge has been reground with hollow grinds on both the front and back bevel. This offers a razor sharp edge which can be maintained quickly and easily with regular stropping and sharpening. The hollow grind on the back of the knife will help prevent a wear bevel developing and will save you hours of sharpening in the long term. 

This is a top quality vintage tool with superb edge retention. The handles are firm and free of damage or woodworm, though there is a hairline crack in the base of one as pictured. 

This is an excellent vintage tool, superior than the mass produced drawknives available on the market today.
