Drawknives are wonderful tools for removing wood quickly and accurately. With smaller projects such as spoons, the size of typical drawknives gets in the way. The Gramercy Tools Spoonmaker’s Drawknife is designed to avoid this problem. It has a very narrow front to back - only 9/16”. This gives you a remarkable ability to dip into and out of concave features of your work. The blade is only 2 1/8” long, which makes it easy to control. The circular handles, which are designed to be grasped between thumb and forefinger, give you the kind of accuracy you need with small work, and they won’t get in the way like large handles will. Unlike a traditional shave this shave works well in either direction - without the handles hitting your clamp, vise, or shavehorse. This is especially important with short work because you can easily shave in both directions without reclamping the work.

The Drawknife is made of 3/16” O1 steel for rigidity and authority in use. We do all the machining, hardening, and sharpening ourselves in our Brooklyn workshop to ensure quality. Our hardening process for O1 relies upon carefully timed and controlled heat, soak, and quench times to ensure a fine, long-lasting edge. We then grind and buff the cutting edge to razor sharp so you can use it immediately, right out of the box.

When you harden steel it typically warps a little. After hardening our drawknife usually has a very slight concavity on the bottom. This is intentional and it helps sharpening the tool.

The circular design means it will be easy to register an accessory handle at any angle to the blade. We plan to offer accessory handle hardware very shortly.

The historical inspiration for this tool goes back to a Saxon shave found in a circa 900 AD tomb. That shave was a regular shave that had been cut down for greater portability. The Gramercy shave takes the design in a new direction especially for small work and spoons.

Made entirely in our Brooklyn workshop. Patent pending.

Spoonmaker's Drawknife
By: Todd Savaria (Jan, 2021)
Wow ! This thing is incredible. It comes ready to use and trust me, it is incredibly sharp. It is small and light and it worked way better than I was expecting. I used it initially to help sculpt the ends of the canoe paddles that I sculpt by hand. It worked exceptional for that. I've done some roughing of kitchen utensils with it also and it does a exceptional job doing that also. So, as you can tell I love this tool and highly, highly recommend it.
I own this product.
Nicely made!

This a small but serious tool that arrives razor sharp! It is actually smaller than I though, but it's a high quality tool. It is not for heavy carving but is great for small delicate tasks like spoons or detail cuts on smaller objects. I would like to see the engraving a little deeper, but this doesn't change the way the tool works, just the way it looks.
I own this product.
