I have bought a fair few secondhand drawknives over the years and this time made a bad call. The blade is good, the maker Cornelius Whitehouse. The handles where both cracked, always a bad sign. Take a look at this.
When buying old tools with tanged handles, beware of split handles, it often means the rust has blown them apart.
If you want to know how to put new handles on a drawknife then have a look at this post I did a few years ago. http://seanhellman.blogspot.co.uk/2011/09/how-to-handle-drawknife-and-other.html
