    Small Drawknife


    I have always been fascinated by tiny woodworking tools so I have decided to create my own collection. I have started with a small drawknife using an old file and a broken hanger for the handles.

    Although the result is perfectly valid for being used, my idea is to keep it as a part of a future wider collection.

    If you like the video please Subscribe to my Youtube Channel

    Materials
    • Old file
    • Hanger wood
    • Brass rod
    • Cyanoacrylate


    • Annealing is a process in which heat is used to soften metal to improve its malleability and make it easier to work.

    Very nice, I am planning to make a similar knife from an HSS planer blade, still working out how to do the bent tangs though.

    I think it might be possible with oxyacet but I don't have that. I will probably have to cut notches and get some mild steel welded on.
