A drawknife is a carpenter’s tool for smoothing wood, consisting of a long-edged knife with a handle at either end. It’s a period charge, found in the canting arms (German schaben, “to scrape”) of von Schaben, 1605 [Siebmacher 139]. The drawknife is fesswise, handles and cutting edge to base, by default. For related charges, see shave. See also float, plane.
