leather skiving knife?
All About Pocket Knives is a knife related resource center for buying, selling, researching, and discussing all things knives
I have this one that I have owned for almost 40 years. It is not the kind of thing you use much, but when you need one you need one. This one uses injector razor blades (which I don't think are available anymore). There is no name anywhere on it, I probably bought it when there used to be a Tandy store in town. This one uses the razor blade bent into an arc, rather than a straight edge. You would make several swipes across the edge to thin it with this one.mrwatch wrote:I know folks here do leather work. a leather skiving knife is a straight fixed blade edge that you push into the end of leather to thin or shave it thinner like for the ends of a strap for the snap. They sell new ones but looking for ideas to make my own. One person said he used a steak knife. I have a new plunge cutter for a block of hard cheese, which is thin, so I will try giving the edge a touch up. Not sure which would be better SS or regular steel.
