Beavercraft DK1S Drawknife with Oak Handle in Leather Sheath Review

The Beavercraft DK1S – Drawknife with oak handle in the leather sheath is an excellent knife for drawing wood from a log.

When you use a draw knife, you have to draw it. This means that the handle must be comfortable and stable, and the blade must also be safe.

Draw knives must have a sharp blade. The knife you choose must meet your requirements. Consider what you will be using the knife for.

Beavercraft DK1S Drawknife

This is a leather sheath. It is handy and compact and has a safety feature that most draw knives lack but is essential. So you can carry the knife with you without fear of cutting yourself.

Aesthetics

The carbon steel blade is strategically placed between two ergonomic, fixed handles. It looks like a small handsaw, only without the serrated edge.

The blade looks smooth, but don’t be fooled. It is very sharp when it comes out of the packet and will cut through various wood, including soft and hardwood. The handles are brown and clean-looking.

Sizes

The blade on this draw knife measures 120mm and is 2mm thick. The handle measures 120mm, and the total length is 360mm.

Feel

The handles have an ergonomic design, making them very easy to use. They are more comfortable than other ordinary handles, and this also means that you will not mind using them for extended periods. You will be willing to spend more time on a particular project because your hands aren’t getting tired as often,

Durability

The Beavercraft DK1S Drawknife with Oak Handle in Leather Sheath is very durable. Both the handle and the blade are made of durable materials. The handle is made of oak which is well known for its strength. The blade is securely fixed between the two handles and does a great job removing large pieces of soft and hardwood. The blade is made of hardened carbon steel.

Price

For a single knife, this may seem to be on the pricey side. However, when you think about what you get from it, you can get a clearer picture of whether this is a worthy investment. This knife is used to shave off pieces of wood from a block. A regular knife may not be able to do this so well.
