    I believe I have something like that in a cabinet out in the shop...I'll go out and see shortly and post a photo if so. That and some drawknives are going up for sale anyway, so thanks for the reminder!

    Here's what I found in the cabinet...no markings but appears to be "hand made". I bought it in about 2003, AFAIK. Probably used for about a dozen strokes on wood way back then.

    Make me a reasonable offer if this will serve your needs. The chair project I original bought it for never came to pass and if I restart it, I'll likely use my CNC for carving out the "butt part" of the seats.

    I also have this set of three draw knives....concave, convex and straight. Barely used. Made in France by ARNO. Same deal...make a reasonable offer.

    Thanks. The first one is an inshave/scorp. I have that. Maybe someone else will grab it up.
    thanks for looking.

    Sorry...I thought that was the tool you asked for. My bad! LOL I'm such a vintage hand-tool expert you know...

    Well, a travisher is kind of a love child between a scorp and a spokeshave. . . . or more accurately Scorps and Drawknives can hog off a lot of material at each pass, whereas a Travisher and Spokeshave do the fine smoothing work.

    Jim, what's the blade width and overall width hand to hand of that first drawknife on the left?

    I'll have to measure them and will post that information later today when I'm in the shop.
