Keen Kutter Draw Knife 6 inch Simmons
This is a very good, hard to find, small size, E.C. SIMMONS 6" wide blade draw knife, marked "KEEN KUTTER 6" on the cast steel cross beam. E.C. Simmons/Keen Kutter was a well known edge tool dealer/distributor and in some cases tool maker with main corporate office in St. Louis MO.
The 6" long cutting edge is sharp and ready to use. We do note some minor pitting in the steel but very little near the cutting edge, none enough to effect the intended use of this tool. Both handles are solid and well attached not cracked, both match in shape and size to one another, both have a very dark stain finish and both have the dome shaped end cap, both snug, not loose. The shape of the blade is a mild curve, or a minimal hollow form.
A rare early draw knife, in good useble condition!
