Shoemaker's utility knife
The knife will make quick work of all your skiving, sole shaping, general cutting needs. Knives come razor sharp ready to use.
German stainless steel Bohler N690, 60-61HRC.
Total length - 250mm, blade edge - 100mm
Width - 30mm
Thickness - 2.5mm
Sharpening angle - 20.
Finish: The surface of the knife is sanded and then machine-satined. The blade is polished to a mirror finish.
Most knives have a straight edge. This knife is concave, lens-like. This makes it easier for the shoemaker to finish sharpening the blade.
It can be used as a skiving knife. The knife is thinner at the end, flexible, which allows you to make a smooth concave cut, such as a skiving machine for assembling shoe uppers. Some places are inaccessible for a skiving machine, and such a knife can be very useful.
