    I'd put this in the "axe porn" sticky, but since I had some drawknives included I would give the title a drawknife description. Anyway, this is some (not all) of the pieces I've collected locally.

    First up are the drawknives. One is an Ohio brand the other one has folding handles and is wonderfully made and is stamped Greenlee.

    A blade I'm currently finishing and an carving blade I bought at the Eugene blade show.

    Starting from rear is an Iltis splitting axe/maul, Wetterling felling axe, GB scani small forest, GB hunter, Norland small axe/hatchet.

    This is local and regional things I've picked up and thought that you might enjoy the old drawknife.

    BTW, while old drawknives are very good, the new ones from GB, Mueller, Biber, Iltis, Two Cherries, and others I've came across are fantastic, and have pickes some up locally.

    Anyway hope you enjoy and sorry that I am an caveman when it comes to taking pics.

    That drawknife with the folding handles is really cool! I've never seen one like that.

    Greenlee tools are very very nice. I have a pexto 10" drawknife I use a lot for making axe handles. Works nice for "Wasting" wood, but I'm spoiled by me spokeshaves!

    That drawknife is nice. It must be made that way for transport in a tool box?

    I will gladly bring this thread back and hopefully more will share the drawknives they have.

    I have but only these two and I have yet to put a file to them.

    I have a Pfeil that is really all I need, but I saw two folding-handle drawknives at an antique store yesterday while I was looking for a smoothing plane. If anyone's seriously interested I'll go back and take pictures.

    I have a few. These all belonged to my grandpa. Since this picture was taken I’ve cleaned up and sharpened the biggest of the three. I’ll get all three tuned up eventually.

    Three that I have top to bottom:

    12" Greenlee

    9" x& xI White (can't make the x out on the stamp)

    9" Can make out POV on the stamp

    All are razor sharp and work well.

    Very very nice old tools. Always valuable. Im sure many have forgotten what they even are or were used for.
