  • To cut leather with this knife, simply place your leather on a cutting mat and insert the appropriate corner of the blade into the leather. Pull the knife towards you while twisting the blade in the direction you wish to cut. It's essential to ensure that the blade is cutting both the mat and the leather to maintain control and prevent slippage. When turning the knife around corners, pitch the handle away from you for more control, and when cutting in straight lines, pitch the handle towards you for straighter lines and more efficient cutting.

    For skiving, place your leather flesh side up on a hard surface, such as glass, with the edge you want to skive facing away from you. Hold the knife with the bevel facing upwards and the blade's edge facing in the same direction as the edge of the leather or at a slight angle, as preferred. Cut the leather outwards or across from where you want the skive to begin straight through to the edge of the leather.
