What a great idea! This looks like a terrific little shaping tool.

Lee Valley has a new drawknife also, a carver’s drawknife that is a little larger than the spoon knife above yet smaller than a full-sized drawknife.

Lee Valley has had that small drawknife for quite a while in O1 steel and just started offering in PM-V11. I’ve owned the former for years and it’s a very nice detail knife.

Thanks.

Flexcut makes a 3" draw knife. The Gramercy looks like it would be uncomfortable after prolonged use. Only $31.00 from Amazon - less than half the price of the Gramercy. If I'm making spoons, I only use a draw knife for rough shaping. After that it's a spokeshave.

I have had the Flexcut for years...it's a good little drawknife, and with handles that provide a good, comfortable grip...I agree with Allan...I use the spokeshave for most of the work...

Well, I've made a spoon or two (thousand) using a standard draw knife for crude shape.  Length is used to slice while drawing, so it's often nice to have.  That said, I have set my https://www.leevalley.com/en-us/shop/too...spokeshave  for a fairly thick shaving and prefer using it, as I do my basic work on fresh wood.  I own two, one set for flat, one for curve.  The other four spokeshaves - Stanley/Record gather dust in the cabinet. 

NB. Put your leather (or wooden) chest protector on when using your shaving bench and drawknife.  Hope I never need it, but it stays on so I can anchor the rough-shaved piece against it when the Mora knife finishes the job.
Better to follow the leader than the pack. Less to step in.
