Made with a charred oak wood handle, this knife is perfect for cutting and skiving leather with ease. The blade, crafted from high-quality Japanese steel, is sharp and durable, ensuring a clean cut every time. Whether you are a professional leatherworker or a beginner, this knife is a must-have for your tool collection. Upgrade your leathercrafting skills with the Kyoshin Elle Leathercraft Tool Knife.

To cut leather simply place your leather onto a quality purpose made cutting mat, then insert the appropriate corner of the blade into your leather and pull the knife towards you, twisting the blade in the direction you wish to cut. Please ensure your blade is cutting the mat as well as your leather to ensure control and reduce the risk of slippage. When turning the knife around corners while cutting, pitch the handle of the knife away from you for more control, and when cutting in straight lines pitch the handle of the blade towards you for straighter lines and more efficient cutting.

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.

This knife features a 24mm (0.9") wide blade that has been expertly handcrafted using only the finest steel. With proper care and storage, it will provide years of reliable use. As with all Japanese blades, it is important to ensure that the cutting edge does not come into contact with hard surfaces when storing the knife.
