Tool Time // Edge Tools and the French Shave

April 23, 2021

NEW VIDEO IS NOW LIVE

EDGE TOOLS AND THE FRENCH SHAVE

Our latest video is now live on our YouTube channel. In this episode of Tool Time I show you what edge tools I use the most and what I use them for as well as how to sharpen and maintain your tools.

To follow along with the video you will need to have your edge tools handy as well as some 1000 grit wet and dry paper (my favourite for tool maintenance), some scrap leather and your polishing compound of choice - I use a tallow and carborundum powder mix but most polishing compounds will work fine.

Hope you enjoy the video and learn how to keep your tools in tip top condition.

Measuring Guide

Ordering a bespoke dog collar or belt? Please read the measuring guide to ensure you order the correct size.

Dog Collars

When measuring for your new dog collar, the best option is to measure the internal length of a current collar adjusted to how you like it fitted. To do this, remove the collar from your dog and do it up at the desired fitting, then with a flexible tape measure measure around the inside of the collar. This length will be where the middle hole will fit on your new collar.

How to measure your dog collar
You can also measure around your dogs neck. Place the tape measure around your dogs neck where the collar will sit and to a tightness that you like.

We will use the measurements provided as the internal measurement and add 2 larger and 2 smaller holes for adjustment. 

Belts

The best way is to measure your current belt from the inside of the buckle to the hole that is used most. You can also use a tape measure and measure around your waist where your belt will sit.

We will add 3 larger and 3 smaller holes for adjustment.

Belt Measuring Guide

We are hoping to get our 1-1 leatherwork courses up and running again from 17th May 2020. If you are interested in booking a day, please contact us for more information.

(please note this date is subject to change)

Our current workshop lead time is 2-3 weeks.
