  • Leather Knife

    SKU: Special Order

    Inspired by a traditional Japanese Kiridashi. A fine tip for detailed work; generous, rounded handle and choil for comfort; jimping on the spine to ensure a firm, safe grip; curved handle to keep your working hand away from the leather; the polished 15 degree edge glides through 10oz leather; handsome and hard-wearing oiled Wenge wood handle; made in O1 carbon steel - tough and easy to get razor sharp with just a few strokes on a strop. This knife is indespensible for leatherwork.


    The item pictured is my personal one (with scuffs :-o) that is hanging above my workbench as a go-to knife. Made to order in a handle material of your choice, optional mosaic pins etc.
