I have a tool that has two handles with 12 inch blade that you draw to yourself.IT says Fulton punched into the top of the blade and the number 12.It came out of my Grandfathers toolchest and he said it was his fathers.The age is probably around a 100 years old.I have no idea what you call this tool.

All I know is that you draw the blade towards yourself and it is very sharp.
WHAT IS THE PROPER NAME OF THIS TOOL AND IS IT WORHT ANYTHING?

Useful tool
by: Dan Andrews

A spoke shave is usually much smaller. The blade or iron is held in a frame of wood or cast iron, with only the cutting edge of the iron exposed. They take fine shavings like a plane.

Use a draw knife to cut away wood to shape, then use the spoke shave to smooth the object you are making.

I use both a lot in making tool handles.

Actually it is a draw knife. Typically used to remove large quantities from a beam and also to shape it. MAybe it was also used by carriage makers.
