  1. Hi my friend I'm currently looking to get a skiving machine and can't decide between a cobra np10 or the techsew sk5 . I believe a cobra is a nippy brand and the sk5 is a global brand. I read all the posts on skiving machines. I live on the east coast .Dabbling in leather work , light stuff, but will like to do heavy work also. Currently using Lisa sorrel knives.  I have a techsew 2700 sewing machine . And will get heavy sewing machine in future. Thanks reason I don't post and ask questions in forum is due to trolls etc. thanks again

      Those two skivers or practically identical except some times one is higher priced than the other.

      Personally, I believe we should learn to skive by hand with a good skiving knife, I use a small round knife that is maddeningly sharp. Like that word?  lol

      The Fortuna is the machine that most clones are copies of. It is terribly expensive and only seldom does a used one come up for sale.

      If I can help further just let me know.
