    hey folks, I just picked up this round knife by Black Cat Metalworks, and it got me pretty stoked so I thought I'd share some pics

    I've never used a proper round knife before, so I don't have anything to compare it to, but having done a few cuts and skives I really appreciate the control and leverage the perpendicular handle provides. I have some niceish leather on the way and a special knife or two I'd like to go the extra mile on to push my skill level up, so I'll put in some mileage over the next few months. It's very sharp, thin stock and has a nice convex edge bevel

    I have a feeling this tool is going to make a big difference in the quality of my work

    this knife is very comfortable in hand, no hot spots, and is nicely balanced. Chris also made this knife to my request. I thought the texture of wenge would be a benefit and that orange might bling things up a bit, and I appreciate the openness to customization in general. Nice touch for sure. He's selling these for $160 or so, and I think that's a good value, especially considering some of the knives I've seen out there for not much less that aren't nearly as nice, and whose profit doesn't go to a man feeding his family through his craftiness

    Good deal. Practice all ya can there is a short learning curve. But once ya get it ya wonder how you ever got by without one.

    The secret is to not let them get dull. Keep a strop near you while cutting and as soon as you feel any drag, strop it. I use a buffer but same thing.
