leather knife

A small knife used to sharpen and cut leather.

Solid wooden grip (handle) and thick blade
You can cut thick leather of 3mm or more in one shot.

Depending on the frequency of use, the time spent on maintenance including sharpening also increases.
Therefore, it is one of the tools that makes you want to prepare a handmade case and use it carefully.

The width and shape of the blade are selected according to the purpose of use.

I always have 2-3 blades to avoid having to re-sharpen the blade mid-cut.

[Left] Recently, newcomers have started using it. White handle and long blade.
I remember the first time I got a brand new knife.

[Second from the left] My knife that I have been using for almost 6 years. The gradually shortening blade
Notice it's half the length.

[Center] A sewing chief who is also a master of kitchen knives. A knife whose charm can be understood by using it for a long time.
Looking at the blade that has become so short, I feel the attachment and history of tools.

[Second from right] Used by the youngest craftsman. sharpened by sharpening
Deformed cutting edge. Because of his extreme youthfulness...

[Right] Made by a skilled craftsman who has devoted himself to kitchen knives for 50 years.
Since it also cuts fabrics other than leather, it is used frequently, and the cycle is to use up two of them in a year.
Cumulatively, this knife is over 100. The end of admiration.

Cutting with a sharpened knife is silent.

If you listen carefully, you can hear the sound of the leather fibers breaking and the breathing of the craftsmen.
