This is one of the knifes I currently use to Skive my leather edges.
As far as I am concerned having a good Skiving Knife is a must have in making smooth transitions
where layers of leather overlap eachother or rest against the skin of the leg.
If you want to create moccasins of the highest quality... you need a good skiving knife like this one!
It has taken me a long time to find enough quality in a knife at an affordable price to replace the custom knife
I started with that cost me over $400. I finally found this Buck Knife that will do the job quite well!
The fit of the handle along with the curve and length of the blade and the overall weight make this excellent for skiving.
It has a 59HRC Hardness Rating, Stainless Steel Fixed 4” Blade with finger grip contoured wood handle
and nylon scabbard. Overall length 8”, weight 7.5 ounces.
I have re-profiled the blade for a more even symmetry and re-sharpened the blade edges of these knives
with The Wicked Edge Sharpening System to a 22 degree extremely sharp edge,
which is quite a bit sharper than the factory edge of about 30 degrees they come with.
I start with a 100 grit set of stones and finish with a 1000 grit set of stones,
using a total of six sets of stones to achieve this ultimate skiving edge.
They skive the leather very well and will only need stropping to keep them sharp for a time.
You can purchase this Buck Skiving Knife on the Products Page for $50 or...
$45 when purchased along with the How To Video & Manual.
