Yeay! A Reply button appeared. This site looks great guys.

This mystery tool appears to be a (very old) draw knife. Many uses, including shaving bark off logs, planing down fence posts, etc etc etc...

That is a drawknife.
It is a shaping tool for wood, occassionally used to 'de-bark' a log.

I use a straight version of this tool when I whittle spindles for Windsor chairs. Mine is a reproduction of an antique tool.

We had some technical difficulties in regards to be able to post to the Mystery tool threads.

"Ender" was the first to send me a personal message with the right answer. 11:01

"isiman69" was the second to send me the right answer by PM. 11:07

"Dzierch" also sent the correct guess by PM at 11:00

I will post copies of the PM's later to show times.

The first to come in with correct answer is "Ender" our winner.

The correct answer is "Drawknife"
