  4. Hi All, A leather hobbyist based out of India (Mumbai) and gladly willing to help others from India looking for leather working tools or related hardware etc as leather working tools are very hard to find in India . I have been helping newbies in India get started into leather craft for past 3 years. I do not own a shop or a business just love the hobby and i do not charge any commissions, so do not expect quick turnarounds as i do this in spare time. However if you have urgent requirements for which you dont mind paying extra we can workout something. Do drop me a message if any requirements. Anything from thread to CNC machine cut makers marks can be arranged.

  12. Well zuludog is correct, like i have mentioned in another of my post i am from Mumbai and shared some pics of the leather working tools available in the markets almost ALL headknives and other cutting/skiving knives made here in mumbai are from used hacksaw blades or large used granite cutting blades.and fitted into wooden handles( see pics below) I have purchased a couple of head knives made from used files and granite cutting blades and also purchased some for other hobbyist and they work amazing and hold a edge well. Well i dont think it would be as good as the US and UK ones but for the price, we pay its definitely value for money ...so no complaints. And these are the same tool the leatherworkers in mumbai use to manufacture the leather goods exported to europe and USA Below are some pics of some of the tools available in the markets of mumbai. If anyone requires these or others pls PM me as i often get stuff from these markets including scrap leather. The thrid pic is of a clicker knife with different hacksaw blades ground in different edge profiles.
