Craft Sha Ergonomic Leathercraft Utility Leather Knife Round French Curved Blade
This rounded French blade Japanese utility knife is great for skiving the edges of your leather as well as other cutting and utility work. Comes with an ergonomic handle and thicker than average blade.
This high quality Craft Sha rounded skiver knife has a French curved blade making it ideal for skiving leather, but also great for cutting as well. It has a thicker than average blade to ensure longevity and comes with an ergonomic handle to ensure a comfortable and strong grip.
For skiving place your leather flesh side up with the edge you wish to skive facing away from you on a hard surface the blade cannot cut, such as glass. Holding the knife with the bevel facing upwards and the edge of the blade facing in the same direction of the edge of the leather, or at a slight angle as preferred, cut your leather outwards or across from where you would like the skive to begin straight through to the edge of the leather.
Handcrafted and made from high quality steel, this knife is tempered on the inside of the blade and annealed on the other surface giving you an exceptionally sharp blade that will last many years.
The steel blade measures 35mm width (1.4). As with all Japanese blades, please ensure that it is stored in a manner that will prevent the cutting edge from contacting hard surfaces.
