Ouch, I can barely handle an hour!~AHG488
Skiving really is one of those things that gets easier with practice, but I prepped more than fifteen feet of lace today... and that is excessive even by my own standards!
I find using the safety beveler from Tandy makes skiving much faster.http://www.tandyleatherfactory.com/en-usd/home/department/tools/3001-00.aspxTakes some practice to get the hang of it, but I love how it works. I tend to waste lace if I try it with an exacto knife.
I have one, and you're right--it's much faster than skiving with an X-acto and sandpaper. Unfortunately, I'm pretty particular. I get much better results with an X-acto and sandpaper, so I persist with that method.
I've wondered for awhile.. is that marble? soapstone? that you skive your leather on? Ann
It's a poly cutting board. Mine is old and dirty and riddled with a million tiny holes. That's why it looks like stone!I use it for skiving mostly because it's convenient. I like to elevate the leather when I skive so that I'm cutting sideways more than down. Any surface that's about half an inch tall would work.
hahahaha very funny, a love the first picture, i want more photos. stall überwachung
