Used to rough cut the inside surface of the staves. Made from high-speed steel (HSS), this hollowing draw knife presents a variable cutting radius depending on its position. Hold it level for a 6" radius cut or progressively tilt it toward 30 degrees and the cut radius gradually moves toward 3". The gull-wing shape balances the pull resistance.
The shave horse offered here is designed to compliment the tools and process shown. It offers the critical ability to hold the jointer plane in position and the stationary round bottom plane for smooth, accurate and relaxed stave sculpting. For more information, see Methods and Craft.
