Likely the oldest documented drawknife I have owned. Has a 7" curved cutting edge. The spelling on HELMER may not be correct as it is hard to make out. Rare maker pre 1856 as I have found a reference to Weed having already left Lockport (NY) as of 1856 making this at least then 166 years old.
**Any edge tool may need to be sharpened/honed before use**
