Item D13 - Libby & Bolton (Portland, ME) Cooper's Heading Draw Knife

This wide draw knife (the wingspan is 19 inches while the edge length 9) was likely made for a cooper working cask heads. The maker was the partnership of I. W. Libby and J. W. Bolton, who made edge tools in Portland, Maine at least between 1857 and 1886. The blade has tarnish, but it is clean and sharp. A former owner pinpricked his initials on the top of the blade, “E. H. G. owner”. The handles havee swollen knobs at their bases, and are tight and in excellent condition. It is a nice draw knife for heavy work. Good+
