TYPES AND USES - Continued
A draw knife is a flat-edged tool used especially on
round timber to rough-shape wood. It is used to smooth
wood after chopping with a hatchet or axe. It consists of
a single bevel blade and two round wooden handles,
one at each end and at right angles to the blade. The
handles may be adjustable or rigid.
A putty knife is used for applying putty to window sashes
in setting panes of glass. The blade has a wide square
point and is available in different lengths and widths.
