In the following video I explain in detail how you can make you very own leather crafting or clickers knife, she is made from 1/4" square bar/Nickel Silver, but can be any material like brass, steel as long as its thick enough to accomodate the blade in the centre.
My blade is a secction of HSS metal hacksaw blade trimmed down to be 10.00mm deep and can be any length of your choce, mine is 8.00 inch long. The blade edge is cut over an inch long and sharpened on both sides to obtain a very fine point for very intricate work, it is the best craft knife I have ever used and fits the hand wonderfully, its very user freindly and removes the need to rest your finger on the top edge of the blade, which can press into your finger tip, those who have used similar knives will know what I mean here.
The brass tube is by K & S tubing which can be obtain from most good model making shops.
The blade is 10.00mm deep.
The frame is 1/4" square bar.
Please let me know if you manage to build your own via the instructions I have given you.
Thanks for looking.
The leather harness or strap cutter now complete and already being put through its paces, she is sporting a brand new hand turned Lignum Vitae Handle which is fitted with hand rolled and soldered German Silver ferrule, I used an existing blade from yesteryear from an existing strap cutter and made the hardware to accomodate it using best brass as the main metal type.
The handle was charr fitted by heating the tang of the blade and burning it into place for a superior fit, as the timber cools down the natural resins and charcoaling process within air and inside the timber acts as a glue to hold things firmly in place.
It can cut from 1/2" up to 3-1/2" wide and has an in built roller to keep the leather firmly against the foot to prevent it lifting and wandering off line.
