    Traditional woodwork and leatherwork.
  1. Hello, I’m looking for a fixed blade knife that would be good for cutting leather along a straight edge. I’ve been using exacto knives, which work fine, but I’d prefer something a little more “long term”. I’ve used a rounding knife from Tandy, but I wasn’t a fan. What would y’all recommend? Thanks.
  2. I made a batch of the initial recipe, and so far so good! I reconditioned the bag I made for my mother, and it really gave it more “life”. Thanks man!
  3. Hello, Ive been making a bunch of early 19th century shooting bags out of full grain bark tanned deer hide, and veg tan cow leather as well. I’m trying to figure out a correct and smart way to condition my items to make them last as long as possible and prevent them from cracking. I’ve read so many different suggestions all over the internet, many of which contradict each other. It’s frustrating. I’m trying to find something that won’t oxidize and crack my work, nor go rancid. I’m also avoiding solvents, petroleums, and silicones. I know there’s nothing perfect, but I’d like to hear from the experts and their opinion. I would just like to be able to keep my pieces in good shape. Thank you.
