6mm - Good for general narrow-width work.
8mm - This is the best size.
Only by using this you can feel the best performance of the palosanto french edger.
10mm - You can work on a wide area without requiring a lot of power and skill.
If you just want to buy something wide, I recommend 10mm, not 12mm.
Purchase for a special purpose
4mm - box stitch, 45 degree cutting, Folding part(line)
12mm - It requires a lot of strength and skill. When working with 24mm, it is much faster to work 3 times with 8mm than 2 times with 12mm and the result is higher.
It is recommended to purchase only those who need 12mm.
The power and skill you need.
Assuming 4mm is 1.
4mm - 1
6mm - 2
8mm - 4
10mm - 8
12mm - 20

Lignum vitae is a finest wood with a very good fragrance.

The re-sharpening method is uploaded to YouTube.
When doing re-sharpening, do not give strength and soften it.
All blades are the same.
The difference in price comes from the difference in price of the handle wood.
Use the same blade and have the same performance.
There is no difference in performance due to handle type price differences.Ready to ship 5-7 business days We need time because we take orders and make products.

Palosanto surely mit itself a name of quality tools, but using them is a whole new experience. In the past I hated skiving, but with this one I can make the pockets of my wallets with a smile on my face. The added extra of the lignin vitae is its wonderful smell, which mixes well with the veg tan :)
As a demanding craftman i was looking for, not only good, but nice tools also. I'm only a beginner in leather craft, and i wanted to begin as well as possible, so i've follow the best leather crafters on the web, and most of them use and recommand Palosanto tools. And will never regret my choice. These tools are carefully made, using good materials, you can only feel it ( some of you know ) by their weight. They are durable and most of ALL !! Realy easy to use if you are good with your hands. Even the french skiver in 12mm width is not so difficult to use. So don't be afraid and go forward!! You can invest a bit of money in Palosanto tools, little by little, making some savings to do it, they worth it!! Thank's to all the team at Palosanto for preserving high level of ARTS and Crafts! Sébastien, a little demanding french crafter.
Beautiful tool. Out performs every other one I’ve tried so far (CS Osborne Barry King and L+L). Makes work easy and pleasant.
