My small collection of knives and awls

Custom made watch strap. Made from antique “woodworm” calf .
And here is how it’s done
Following the hunt for perfect working tool for my purposes I made this skiving knife. While maintaining the line of small nessmuk it has narrower blade so it is easier to maneuver while working with small leather pieces.
I have two knives made by Kaminari Knives. He made them to my specification (as long as the blade shape and size goes) but the finish touches were all his and I really love the rough, forged look.
Will post some testing videos soon.
I made a small trimming knife for my leather work. I wanted handy, everyday use tool. This is my first knife I have ever made. Lot of fun and even more lessons learnt.
Here is another awl I made. This one is wider, for projects that require bigger stitches.
Hand made watch strap in navy blue leather. Hand stitched with Amy Roke thread.
This one took a bit longer to make since I filmed the whole process. Have a look
So, I’ve decided to make my own stitching awl. And here it is. Handle made from amaranth wood.
