Swivel knives for small hands

Recommended Posts

I have rather small hands for an adult. I wear kids gloves a lot of the time . Now this is a good thing for changing the battery on the skid steer and pulling lambs. But it has in over 30 of working with leather been all that great. I want to upgrade my knives. I grew up using my Dad's fifties Tandy which fit pretty good but my sister claimed it. I found another which is great but I find them nice and small for when I'm teaching kids. To many of the others can't fit thier hands. I'm talking 9 years old. I'm going to be giving up all my old knives starting this month to my nephews. So I need a great knife for a very small hand ASAP. Does anyone have any ideas?

Barry King makes a 3/8 diameter knife that is great. I think Leather Wranglers will custom make one for you.

Thanks I'll look in to it. I just lost my knife to my nephew for now. But I will to the other in June for good. I'll need new soon

My wife ( does n't work leather though ) has the same kind of size hands, wears children's gloves and wears XS size clothing..Luckily here women's shoe sizes start at her size..
French size 37..
