I'm so excited! Dave is making me a Round Knife of my own for leather working! He finally got tired of me stealing his! A round knife, (sometimes called a head knife), is used quite often in the production of just about any leather project. It enables the leather worker to cut curves, long straight lines and corners easily. It can also be used for skiving leather, which takes practice to master. I know, as I have made some "holes" in the leather. Dave used AEB-L stainless steel that was heat treated to 63 on the Rockwell Scale. That will make it SUPER sharp. I will try not to cut my fingers off.
