  1. Yes sorry my fault we have gone off topic, but the point was we were finishing edges long before Tokonol came also i have never used it, there plenty of other good ways to finish edges and possibly cheaper as well. And with think its time for a tea break.
  2. Please don't tell me its Thompsons.
  3. A Skirt Shave/French Edger breaking in use use is not a good thing at all so heed Bruces warning. All leather cutting tools should be respected but Skirt Shaves/French Edgers particularly so these have to be good and sharp well stropped before you use these, one that is not can at best ruin your work or at worse inflict a lot of damage to you so be careful when using this tool. Pretty is not always nice. Hope this helps JCUK
  4. Have to say i am more worried about the tea shortage that may be coming, it might mean i have to start drinking coffee.
  5. Just been to Metropolitan added all three colours to my cart, so maybe give them a call. Hope this helps JCUK

  7. This may be of use to you because there will come a time you will need to sharpen the blade. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7uUvErBUG68 Hope this helps JCUK
  8. It is also known as a single Head knife. Here is a oldish post on here of some one selling the Vergez Blanchard one, not sure if he still has any, maybe D M he may still have some left. https://leatherworker.net/forum/topic/96247-exclusive-vergez-blanchard-single-head-knives/ Hope this helps JCUK
  9. This may be of some use to you, maybe try it on piece of scrap first. I have not tried this myself but it looks like it may help. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b-Pa41ZUDNs Hope this helps JCUK
  10. He is a couple of clips from YouTube that may be of be some help, it is the same method for a Browband. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ajI5AyaXh8M With a Skirt Shave/French Edger. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KU5IzvX3lrc With a Single Head Knife. You can use this method also just make sure you use a high number edge shave on the filler to give it the rounder looking finished look. A larger number Hollow Edge Shave if you have one would give it a better appearance. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rz6VA5mhwbo Hope this helps JCUK
  11. I was lucky enough to have been taught how to use a Round Knife and can not imagine not using one for the work i do, at least 95% of the cutting and skiving i do is with one . The only other knife i use is a Clicker Knife for lighter weights leather even then i use my Round Knife most of the time. The ability to cut really heavy leather and then skive it down using the same tool just seems a no brainer to me, also i can skive down light leather using one, tried using a skiving/paring knife its ok but much better using a Round knife to me. Hope this helps JCUK
  12. Here are some links of leather merchants and suppliers in UK who maybe will have something that may do or they might be able to source something for you. https://www.abbeyengland.com https://www.metropolitanleather.com https://www.aacrack.com Hope this helps JCUK
