Old Draw Knife

by Kenny Reid
(Cowpens S.C.)

I have a old type of draw knife , I was wondering what it;s called and used for ? the best I can describe is as follows, it;s about 16 inches long with removable blades in the knife part held in place by screws , the blade is straight , not curved , the handles are attached at different angles , on one end the handle runs long ways with the blade and the other end handle is attached cross ways , like the top of the letter T, the knife itself looks like the letter T. If you could give me any information about this knife i would greatly appreciate it .

Thank you
Kenny Reid
