Woodworking drawknives come in a variety of shapes and sizes.
The two main types carvers have used: bent and straight.
The Bent drawknife has a blade that bares a slight arch and the handles are on the same plane as the blade.
The straight push knife have handles on the same line with the blade and the blade tends to be straight.
Using a push knife is different in the way that you are expected to force the edge away from your body instead of pulling it toward you.  It allows you to either push or pull the knife. I normally use the knife in the manner that gets the job done—meaning on occasion I will draw the knife toward me rather than push.
The knives’ handles can vary. Most of mine have a pear-like shape. There are other styles like a round knob style, which is a ball shape.
