  1. What swivel knife to buy?

    I get it. I'll try raising mine but I will definitely be looking for a better one asap. I just started carving and I love it. Thanks for the advice from everyone.
  2. What swivel knife to buy?

    I didn't know they make sleeves. That would help tremendously. Yeah I use masking tape it is ugly but it helped a little. I may have to do this on my stamps. I was working on a small sheath this morning and had to stop because my hands were killing me.
  3. What swivel knife to buy?

    Thanks for all the tips and places to look for knew knifes. I see some very impressive collections so it doesn't hurt to have more. Question on this, is having a lot just for collecting? Or do some people have different knifes for specific purposes?
  4. What swivel knife to buy?

    So ive been playing with leather carving and I am currently borrowing a swivel knife from a friend that is from an old Tandy kit. I am not happy with it and it cramps my hand, I dont know if its just the knife or my lack of experience(which im sure has alot to do with it). I was looking at buying my own swivel knife and was looking at the Ergo handle knife from Tandy or something else. I am going to buy a stamp from Pro Leather Carvers and was thinking about throwing in a swivel knife they carry but the large one that is 1/2 diameter. I dont know anything about this tool and I am very interested. A problem that I have and im assuming is very common is that my curves are very choppy. Can someone help me with this before I order from the website. Thanks again
  5. Question about a pattern

    I have a question about this tooling. Does anyone know if this is a specific tool or someone stamped a circle and then cut the lines?
  6. where is a good place to buy thread?

    I'll check them all out, thank y'all for the responses. Amazon kept popping up when I was looking and wasn't sure what to expect.
  7. Im still very new to leather working, I have been doing it for about 3 months. I am looking for a turquoise color thread and my local Tandy did not have any. Where can I find this color online that is suitable for saddle stitching?
