Japanese Leather Skiveing Knife


Recommended Posts

My son-inLaw has a leather crafting business,( Davis leathercrafters) and wanted to try and sell some tools (so he says) Sent me a drawing of this design and wanted to see if I could make it. Now I cant find it for sale on his website ??? I suspect i just made him a new tool.

 

This is L-6 edge hardened aluminum bolster, and I dont know what the wood is some kind of asian oak.

Any body need a Skiver? <_<
