Drawknife from a rasp
« on: January 09, 2021, 10:03:13 pm »
I made this drawknife from a farriers rasp, drew the reins out then bent them to the angle I wanted. This works great, perfect size and made short work of some Osage today. Just need to finish the fandles

Looks good!  My farrier's rasp I'd still in too good condition to consider repurposing (f) >:D!
Life is far too serious to be taken that way!
