    Sheridan Style Tools

    The recommended “kit” will save you a little money direct from Barry, I have used his tools for some time. You could start with one or two here and there but believe me you will end up with all that are in the kit so why not get it to start with if the budget allows. I don’t think you can go wrong with his tools!

    A little hardware help

    I have and use the king snap setters but not with buckle guy snaps, I would think there isn’t much difference in setting any of them. What’s the question?

    This MUST be a Joke!! ...Nope!

    Guns kill people, matches cause fires, and spoons make people fat, just ask the democrats

    Swivel knife to buy

    Barry King is a good choice, but there are a lot of excellent makers. Chuck Smith, Leather Wrangler, Henley , Clay Miller, etc. they all make good knives and blades. Bob Beard pro series is top shelf also. In my opinion barrel size depends on what you are carving and personal preference. I like a 3/8” barrel for Sheridan and floral carving, you can turn tight curves better, for long straight lines a larger barrel and blade is easier to use I also prefer a 1/4” straight blade for the Sheridan carving, but it really all comes down to personal preference. If you can hold and use some different sizes that may help. A lot is also what you get use too. Hope that is of some help.

    I like the pipe idea! Who made the knife?

    So you wanna learn tooling....

    If I was out of line I apologize! I just get a little upset when people start knocking other people’s work or efforts. Some of us just appreciate others efforts. So JLS I apologize to you for being out of line. I am sure JLS is a very talented and nice person, so please forgive me

    I am sure none of it matters to you what anyone thinks but if someone is putting info out there to help others some of us appreciate not only the content but the effort involved to give us that info free of charge! People like you and your negative comments make those giving that free info tend to think why bother, so for those of us who don’t know everything we would like to see that info that people like Don Gonzales and others are kind enough to put out there for us to learn and enjoy. In other words if you can’t say something good you should keep your mouth shut!!

    Gosh JLS leather I must have missed all those good utube videos that you put out that were so helpful! I am sure they are there because of all your expertise! Sorry but negative people tend to piss me off!

    Excellent video, I have been tooling for a lot of years and Dons videos are very helpful and full of information no matter what your experience level is. You seem to always learn or re-learn something in his videos.
