Every time that Jim Linnell teaches this workshop, either in person or online, it is regularly one of his most popular classes, often selling out. Veteran leatherworkers and those new to the craft alike both pick up useful insights in the Swivel Knife Finesse course.
That is because, without question, the swivel knife has been one of most challenging leather tools for many generations of leather workers. There are basic techniques that, once learned, can help you overcome most of these challenges. In this video, Jim Linnell teaches the secrets that lead to mastering the swivel knife.
The course walks students through different styles of swivel knives, how to make your swivel knife work better, habits that can improve the effectiveness of your carving, and practice tips to continue to grow.
