  1. Hello, I bought a "Midas" 7 piece tool set (with Swivel Knife) from the Zach White Leather company that turned out to be a Craftool Basic Seven Tool Set. Anyway the swivel knife blade is so dull I cant even cut my finger if I tried. My question is how sharp should the Swivel knife be? I plan to use my 800 and 1200 grit diamond sharpeners to sharpen the blade, is this ok? Also, I see a lot of references to strop the swivel knife blade on cardboard (which I find somewhat humorous) instead of leather - Why not a leather strop? I have several for my Bushcraft and wood carving blades and leather seems to work well. Thanks in advance Dave S
  2. Thanks for the replies, I have it rolled up right now but plan to make some kind of contraption to hang it up in the spare bedroom and hopefully not take up too much space.
  3. Hi, I am getting back into the Leather craft hobby to make some Bushcraft Items and some holsters. I purchased a couple of half shoulders last weekend and was wondering what is the best way to store these until I use them? Also what about scrap pieces? I'm not sure if they should be stored in plastic, rolled up (that is how I got them from the store), laid flat etc. Does humidity (or lack of) affect the leather? How do you guys store your leather? Thanks Dave S
