A Behind-the-Scenes Look at Our Maker
We wanted to share with you an inside look at a 4th generation family business that makes some of our best garden digging tools and most of our axes, hatchets, and clearing tools.
It’s located in Germany near Heidelberg, not far from the Rhine River. The factory and forge are run by Tobias runs with his wife Dovile. In my 30+ years of being in the tool business, I’ve learned the exceptional people are those who always have an eye out for quality and can easily discuss both the use of the tools, the process of making them, as well as the craftsman who work for them. Tobias fit that mark perfectly – it’s in his blood.
From the Hickory handles sourced in the USA to the forges powered by wood waste the details are considered.
The Draw Knife can quickly remove bark from a tree or round uneven surfaces. It's a great tool for sculptors, woodworkers, timber framing, or even turn branches into garden stakes or hand rails. It is a true “homestead builder’s tool.” Forged in Germany by a multi-generational family business.
In its simplest form, a drawknife is a single-beveled blade with two handles. They are ancient tools used by Viking Shipwrights in 100 A.D. The tool gets its name from how it is used, drawing it towards you. It’s a very intuitive tool, you control the angle the blade enters the wood which in turn controls the depth of cut.
Blade Length: 9-1/4"
Shipping Restrictions: Not eligible to ship to Canada.You May Also Like
