  3. Very New... with Questions :)

    Hello all, I have just started looking into doing some leather work, mostly tooling. I am from Denver and love to work with my hands: wood working, metal working, airbrushing and working on both cars and motorcycles. I do have a quick question. While looking into leather work i came across a post, on this site, stating that when looking to buy a swivel knife, you should really hold the knife because they are very personal. I understand this comment fully. I had the same need to hold various airbrushes when i started that hobby. In fact i bought an Iwata airbrush and had to see it because i didn't like the way it felt in my hand. Now my question is, are there any places around Denver besides Tandy leather where i could touch and cut with various swivel knives? I don't believe that Tandy would have any other swivel knife manufacturers swivel knives like henley, barry king, leather wranglers or bob beard. Is that true or do they actually have other knives besides craftool? thanks from a real beginner, Zonker
