New Video! SWIVEL KNIFE HOW TO PUT DESIGNS ON LEATHER
Tooling and carving leather with Bruce Cheaney. In this YouTube video I show you how to “cut in” the design on saddle skirts for a custom saddle I am making. First I transfer the design from the paper pattern that I have sketched to the moist Hermann Oak saddle skirting. Next the design is cut into the leather with a Barry King swivel knife. Once the design is cut in on the one side it is then placed on the opposite side and the design is tapped off onto the saddle skirt. With a few leather tools you can create very unique designs the leather tools used here are three craftool bevelers a small pear shader a veiner and a 888 craftool background tool plus the brass swivel knife with a hollow ground blade.
