Antique drawknife.

A drawknife is a woodworking tool that consists of a sharpened blade with two handles on either end. The drawknife is used by placing the edge against a piece of wood and pulling towards the user.

Oftimes a shave horse is used for holding the job in place.

Nowadays, drawknives are relatively rare tool, but a recent resurgence of interest in the use of non-powered hand tools in woodworking has resulted in the increase of availability of new drawknives.

A drawknife with a curved blade is known as an inshave or sometimes a scorp.
