Leather Axe Stonewashed Cocobolo
A different take on the traditional western round-knife or half-moon knife. Only one tip of a traditional round-knife is generally used and the full length of the blade is rarely utilized. This version does away with one tip, providing an additional thumb grip in it's place and an ergonomic curved handle. More nimble and efficient than a traditional round-knife... a quarter knife?
This beauty has a rounded handle, choil and spine for comfort. With the full distal taper from the handle to the cutting edge and the polished 15 degree edge - it glides through 10oz leather with ease. A handsome and hard-wearing oiled Cocobolo handle. This knife is crafted in 52100 carbon steel - very tough and easy to get razor sharp with just a few strokes on a strop (less blade to sharpen than a traditional round-knife :-) ). The steel has been darkened and given a stonewashed patina - something a bit different! This knife makes easy work of straight lines and gentle curves.
This tool is a 'must have' for your leatherwork projects.
