Let me start by saying: what a blade. Made of heat treated tool steel, nice and sharp, gave it a slight stropping to polish it and went to work. Glides smoothly through leather like a hot knife through butter.
Now this one is WIDE, and does nice wide cuts, and is perfect for heavier leathers, in the 7/8 oz and up. Carving a 10 oz gun holster with this, and it is perfect.
If working with 5/6 oz or lighter leather go with the regular blade.
Love the hollow ground blades and excellent tool steel Barry King uses for these, and combined with one of his excellent Swivel knives, a perfect pairing.
BK blades are also available for those using Tandy Leather/Al Stohlman swivel knives.
Oh and the pricing is excellent as well.
Thanks to Don and Longview Leather for carrying Barry King products.
