Hello Everyone,

I I have recently joined this awesome website( today) and usually used to visit occasionally and be in awe at the awesome tools shared on this website. Anyway here in India ( Mumbai)  we have a very large leather export market and i usually visit these places to see their manufacturing techniques and tools used. Its kinda difficult to gain access to their manufacturing units but over the period have made some friends who show me around their workshops I was amazed at their skills with very basic tools. Most of the head knifes are made from used files and circular saw blades and work beautifully in cutting and hold an edge well. I also got to see the manufacturing of these head knives by local knife sharpeners ( sorry no pics this time)

I thought of sharing pics of some of the headknives. I did not take pics specifically for posting but will take more pics next time i visit. Pls PM me if interested in headknives, punches, and other leather tools. This is not my business ( and neither intend to make it :) )  but thought of sharing as i hardly saw stuff from India on this fantastic site.

The price range for head knives/ round knives is of 7-10$ and hole punches $1, the most interesting and which i picked up 4 for myself are the clicker knives for only 3$ each !!!!!! which is very cheap by Indian standards too. However, i must say these are not the rates all over Mumbai, as i was visiting the area engaged in exclusive leather manufacturing so the shops in the area are providing tools for the leather industry at very competitive rates and very functional.

Let me know if anyone interested in buying any of below head knives or clicker knives or any other leather  stuff and i can send you (i am doing this 4.jpeg.1768cad3d7e4ee226c667736c778ed05.jpeg on non-profit basis).

Hi,

Really nice to hear from a fellow indian with similar hobbies. I would be interested in the stuff you have seen around Dharavi. I am also looking for Veg tan leather in heavier sizes 6-8 oz. Also fittings like clasps/ buckles/ studs etc. I am based in Pune.

regards

Cavalier
