This consists of a steel blade with an edge formed by grinding on one side only. This blade is furnished at both ends with handles, at right angles to it, and in the same plane. The tool is worked with both hands, so that the whole strength of the slojder can be thrown into its use. The draw-knife is chiefly used in modelling and smoothing objects with curved outlines. It is also used in making hoops for barrels, etc. Directions for its use are given in Chap. V.
