Everyone Needs A Good Knife

Spread the love

Cutting leather requires a good knife. There are knives made specifically for cutting leather, but for a beginner, they can get expensive. When I first started out, I used a utility knife that I could change the blade in regularly. A good clean cut with a sharp blade makes working with leather a lot more enjoyable.

The utility knife is a multi use tool, it comes in handy in so many situations. I can use this to cut leather, cut sheet rock, open boxes, a variety of things. The knife is also comfortable as an every day carry blade. The price is very reasonable, so if you lose it, it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg to replace it. I have a few really expensive knives that I would be sick if I lost them.

I was first introduced to the Stanley brand while doing construction so many years ago. Everyone had a Stanley tool of some type. I used a straight, fixed utility knife for many years when I hung sheet rock, and it performed every day without fail.

If you are looking for a knife to cut leather, or just a utility knife in general, check out this Stanley. I will also link to extra blades.

I realized many people are not able to pay for classes to learn how to work with leather. I was provided information without charge, in an effort to keep a dying art alive and well. So I decided to pay it forward. Each purchase you make by clicking on the links pays me a small affiliate fee. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.
