  1. Thank you for your time, and for sharing. Kevin
  2. I agree, not to mention with a little use and handling it will look more awesome. Kevin
  3. Agreed. like I said, I hadn't seen one before. Kevin
  4. I have never seen one of these, just wanted to share. http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Rare-Leather-Craft-Quik-Change-Swivel-Knife-9-Extra-Blades-/350829063861?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item51af0aaeb5#ht_4056wt_1162 Kevin
  5. Ah boo, missed the sale I guess. Cheers, Kevin
  6. I've seen similar, try buffing the dry died article more before applying the resolene (cut 50/50 with water) and don't "massage" or do cricles when applying the resolene. Just even straight strokes. Kevin
  7. Very welcome, glad I could help. I've purchased here, great quality. Kevin
  8. Post a pic if you can. I've definitely cut the leather by using too much force in the past, but I've never had leather "punch out" by stamping. Is this happening on cased veg tan? Pictures would be best. Cheers, Kevin
  9. May have been here: http://tanglefoottraders.wix.com/tangle-foot-trading#!__knife-sales-page/productsstackergalleryv21=1 Cheers, Kevin
  10. Yeah if your provider doesn't offer the service, that can't work at all. If they did it wouldn't matter if you knew the number, because you can block the "last caller". The system knows the number even if it isn't displayed to you. May still be worth calling them for options. Good luck, Kevin ps. You could always forward your phone to police station or something...(just kidding)
  11. Block it if you have call screen. Which most cell providers don't have/provide. Might be best to contact your carrier for options. If you dial *611 from your device that should link you to your provider free of charge. (Does here in Canada) Kevin
  12. My suggestion would be to look at some books, craftaids and patterns. I'm not familiar with many others, but Al Stohlmans books and patterns often tell you what tool is used for each part of the pattern. Find a few patterns you would like to try and buy the tools referenced for it. Cheers, Kevin
  13. I use mostly a razor type knife with a locking mechanism of some sort. ( I have various different ones) I may be the only one that does this, maybe not, but I hold it blade pointed toward me and cut pushing away. This is very comfortable for me and I find I have much better control. I also use a rotary for thin suede and lining leather and a "craft knife" for cutouts etc. You can never have enough knives imo. Kevin
  14. Milled Veg Tan seems to fit your description. You can see it here. http://www.tandyleatherfactory.ca/en-cad/search/searchresults/9048-20.aspx Hope this helps. Kevin
  15. As you should be, the design and finish are very good and your edges are superb! Kevin
