This Michihamono leathercraft tool has an ergonomic handle and a 36mm wide, flat blade that is expertly honed, making it ideal for cutting leather.
Cut your leathercraft smoothly with this flat leather cutting knife from Michihamono, a renowned carving tool manufacturer based in Japan. This tool is forged from quality special die steel, high carbon steel with a high level of hardness, strength, and wear resistance, ensuring long-lasting sharpness and making it ideal for cutting leather. This tool's handle is made from cherry blossom wood that is ergonomically designed, making it easy to hold and control during use.
To cut leather, just set it on a cutting mat, insert the blade's appropriate corner into the leather, and pull the knife towards you, twisting the blade in the direction you want to cut. To guarantee control and limit the possibility of slippage, make sure your blade is cutting both the mat and the leather. Pitch the knife's handle away from you while cutting around corners for better control, and pitch the blade's handle towards you when cutting in straight lines for straighter and more efficient cutting.
