Tool Time // My Other Most Used Knives and How to Sharpen Them

November 27, 2021

In the latest episode of tool time we are talking all about the other knives I use on a regular basis in the workshop and how to maintain them. These are the pairing knife (I have 2 of these beauties) and a handy fixed blade craft knife that is amazing for those tiny bits you need to cut out.

I hope you enjoy the video :-)

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. 


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.

Hello and Welcome to J.H.Leather

Our 1:1 workshops are back for 2022! We only have a few spaces left for this year, and they are in October.

We are excited to announce the launch of our NEW acrylic templates. We have new designs ready now and are working to convert most of our range of PDF Patterns. You can also check out our YouTube channel for FREE tutorials.

In the workshop, we are working on about a 2-3 week turnaround on all handmade leather goods. We do have some ready to post items in our clearance items and our limited edition collections.
