EARLY 'F. WEED JN HELMER LOCKPORT' CURVED DRAW KNIFE - 1840-50

Regular price $150.00 USD

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 makers pre 1856 as I have found a reference to Weed having already left Lockport (NY) as of 1856. This is at least then 166 years old.

**Any edge tool may need to be sharpened/honed before use**
