    Need an edge skiver for leather crafting...

    I was looking for a simple way I to skive the edges of my sheaths before adding the welts. That would reduce the overall edge thickness resulting in a nicer look.

    I made a skiving knife out of .075 15N20 steel, and heat treated to a Rh of 60.
