    I have seen that before and find it interesting. Big knives make great draw knives as well.

    How often do we use drawknives in the wilds and for what purposes. I really haven't done it much and wonder what I may be missing out on.

    Tracker knives have that flat section which is meant to be used as a drawknife.

    I guess that a drawknife is more for the "craft" side of Bushcraft.
