There's an interesting book by Dennis Riley - "Anglo-Saxon Tools", illustrated by his many reconstructions of Medieval tools from archaeological finds in Britain and northern Europe and some descriptions of their effectiveness in use.

I believe he is also one of the people behind Daegred Tools of Sheffield UK, who sell such tools on ebay.

Despite living in the same city, I have no connection. I did buy an unusual draw-shave based on an English find nd it works well.
