  1. Personally I think it depends what you mean. I mean... If you want a single elegant line and round edge only, I would use an "Single Line Leather Edge" and you can use on veg tan leather warming it up or not. This It's the method I use. But in the intricated design it's harder to use it, of course for it's shape.
  2. Hello. I'm Sheila from Ticino, South Switzerland. I'm a beginner self-taught leather worker. I have a lot to learn, but I'm not afraid by mistakes. I hope to make some good courses as soon I can, for the moment here some of my works. I love to make bags: in the first picture the first one I made as gift for my mom. Now I'm working on my first prototype, almost finished. second picture: A small box and after some eyeglasses case I designed. At the end a keyring. all Giftes. All hand crafted, with the best veg tan leather from Tuscany. I made myself also my cardboard packaging. I hope you like them. Here my Instagram: http://www.Instagram.com/orikawa.atelier_leather
  3. As beginner too, I found that for skiving the easier way it's with french edger. I have this one: Craft Sha FLINT Leathercraft Tool French Edger 6mm or 15/64" Leather Skiver Beveler | Goods Japan Shop Personally I'm saving money for the Palosanto ones. You have my same taste by the way. Except maybe, for the clamp for sewing... I want one from Korea, but in wood.
  4. If I can give you an advice as you are a beginner, as Pricking Irons, I would use these 2 (you can choose between the 2 brands from Japan): - Craft Sha Leather Pricking Iron Tool Leathercraft Diamond Stitching Chisel 2x3mm | Goods Japan Shop - Seiwa Diamond Leather Stitching Chisel Leathercraft Pricking Iron Tool 6x3mm | Goods Japan Shop These 2 to marking holes and this awl to make the holes (of course if you want the diamond shape): Kyoshin Elle Leathercraft Stitching Awl for Sewing Leather Diamond Point Small | Goods Japan Shop Are really good tools to me, and not expensive, at the beginning could help. Of course if you want start with the best by KS Blade, not a problem. I wanted only to tell how I started and I still use them.
  5. Hello. I think myself to the logo, and I asked to an artist to make the definitive design, an anko (japanese stamp) in my case. In your case, maybe you need to ask to a graphic. Personally, I want to make myself my cards and packaging using hot foil stamping. And for the websites I would to use wix.
  6. As I know one of the best quality of tools are KS Blade, from Korea. Not sure they make what you need, just try to check: https://ksbladepunch.com/shop
