Re: [BKARTS] Leather Paring Knives

I have several different paring knives from various countries.  They all
have their particular use. If you are just starting out, I would definitely
invest in Jeff Peachey's paring knife, called The Peachey Knife.  It has
been the easiest to use & the least intimidating. He prepares the edge
beautifully for you & is easy to maintain too.

Subject: [BKARTS] Leather Paring Knives

I need to pare some leather but have only one tool - the inexpensive "skife
knife" that uses a single-edge razor blade.  Are there any
generally-recognized advantages and disadvantges to the French, Swiss and
English paring knives like those I see in the Talas catalogue?
