Another wonderful craftsmanship tool, handmade by our knife maker friend Borja Canedo in Spain.
We decided to leave the upper part with the forged and tempered shell to remind us that this is a handmade and unique tool… besides how beautiful it looks.
Custom made with the 60º angle on the blade as I personally requested (traditional paring/skiving knife cutting angle), as that angle allows you to have a better perform while skiving allowing you to cut accurate, a wider area and you can still keep the tip of the knife resting on the cutting surface.
Available for right and left handed too.
Hand sharpened by Borja and I personally give each knife a final sharpening (mirror finish) here at the Leather Artisan Lab workshop for an excellent cut right out of the box.
To keep this knife always sharp my advice is to always have a strop with polishing paste close and give the knife a touch up while you are working.
If you see that it has lost some edge or you need more precision, I advise you to use Matador Wet & Dry sandpaper or a sharpening stone minimum 2000 grit (I personally use 5000 or 6000 grit).
You should run the knife at the correct angle and always run the edge in the right direction,never against the edge. Every 10 or 12 times you do this you should run the knife 3 or 4 times over the back side of the blade (also never against the edge) to get rid of the burr.
