We are excited to have available a premium line of Chartermade skiving knives. These knives are hand made by Terrick of Chartermade in South Africa in a 4-hour process with the utmost attention to detail.
His obsession for perfection can be immediately seen when handling and using these knives. The knives are made of the finest materials, the steel comes from Austria and has superb edge retention. The handle is crafted from beautiful African Teak wood and has a very ergonomic shape for comfortable skiving and cutting.
The blade shape and bevel have subtle innovation from traditional skiving knives. The shape of the blade has a relief in the corner to help you start your skiving cuts gradually and slip the blade into the leather with ease. The bevel has a unique shape to it that is used in specialty knives to add strength to the tip, reducing wear and dulling. This knife has some of the longest blade retention we have found, simply stropping before use a few times and it will stay razor sharp for years.
The skiving knife comes razor sharp and protected in a beautiful wood box for storage. We are confident this will be a go-to knife for your skiving and cutting needs and a great addition to your workshop.
