Coopers Hollowing Drawknife

These specialized drawknives are used for preliminary hollowing on the inner faces of bucket and barrel staves. Most older cooper's knives were made with a shallow sweep that is appropriate for large stave containers, such as wine or whiskey barrels. The curve and overall size of our version is intended for coopered containers approximately 8-16" in diameter. Based on a Swiss pattern, similar to those used by Küfermeister Ruedi Kohler. These are also made by Hans Karlsson from Swedish Uddeholm steel Arne specification SS2140.
