Halbach & Sons on the metal. I will try to attach a photo. Thanks to any and all help. I have been picking up old tools. They are so beautiful. I have a nice little collection. All I can find on the maker is that they made guns over 100 yrs. ago...guess they made a few tools also. Shoot. I'll repost. Can't find the daggum pic. Fumbly
It's definitely a well used drawknife & will need some TLC for any fine work. I have half a dozen of various sizes & shapes. I use them with a shaving horse for making handles, canes & roughing out longish pieces of wood. Here's mine: Attachment 1811
