Precautions for use.
First of all, the blade is extremely sharp.
Use it after checking through the test. Must be used on cutting pad.
Because the blades very sharp, the cutting pad can be cut or pinched If you give too much force.
If you curve in that state, the blade may break.
The correct usage is to work with the appropriate force on the cutting pad.Ready to ship 5-7 business days We need time because we take orders and make products.

Cutting through 3oz leather on my cutting mat and the blade corner chipped off. I do this same cut with my other Japanese skiving knife and it’s still fine so something must be wrong with this new one, still haven’t heard back from their support after 6 days now.
I needed a narrow skiving knife to get to areas that my go to head knife or skiver couldn’t. This is the perfect sized blade. Super sharp and ready to use out of the box.
The handle will need some shaping to give it a more “custom” fit. Will definitely purchase the wider blade as well.
This knife outperforms all my other Japanese skiving knives in sharpness, edge retention, and feel in grip. Great smell of Lignum Vitae is an unexpected bonus!
I bought the small knife and it was sharp out of the box. I also bought the large one and it super sharp too. The handle is very simple and you could shape it to fit your hand easily. The steel could be fragile due to the tempering but using properly you should not have issues. I had an issue with the edge beveler #2and he sent me a replacement free of charge. That is customer service,I don’t know anyone out there doing it. Thanks 5 stars. Great communication too
I have a few Japanese style skiving knives. This Palosanto knife showed up sharper then the rest and ready to work. Arrived much sooner then I expected. Well worth the price.
