The Bison drawknife is uniquely forged with natural finish handles for a truly authentic tool.
Designed for removing bark and shaping logs, the Bison drawknife precisely cuts to leave wood planed to your desired effect. The drawknife can also be used to shape dowels and other wood pieces for woodworking crafts. The robust contoured wooden handles fit snug in the hand and allow for plenty of effort behind each stroke. The drawknife’s sharp edge glides over timber and can provide a deeper cutting action when angled by hand into the wood.

Bison 1879 originates from the family tradition of master-smith Moritz Trept, a tradition that later became Bison, the company. Today Bison is renowned for producing individually unique, hand-forged axes and forestry tools. Assorted hickory wood handles add to the distinct individual look and will vary between tool made. The natural colour of hickory wood varies between a very light beige to a darker more reddish tone. The colour has no effect on the quality or usability of the handle, in fact, a lot of customers value this natural colour scheme giving their tool an authentic uniqueness. Bison handles are fitted using high pressure and during assembly there may be some splinters. A light sandpaper easily removes these. Hand-forged, crafted tools with authentic individuality is what differentiates Bison 1879.
