  1. Great tutorial Marcel!! Best I’ve seen on the subject…and I really appreciate the audio. 🙂

    One question, if I may…would a thick sheet of glass work instead of the marble? If not, why not?

  2. Thanks for the great video!
    Two questions:
    1. How thick is the leather before skiving and after? I’ve seen shoemakers use various leathers from 3 to about 5mm thick for this purpose, so I’d like to know your opinion on this.

    2. What is your whetstone made of?


  3. Hi Marcell, Excellent video. Thanks. I’m looking for knives like the two you used in the video, especially the second knife with the curved blade that lets you get very close to the edge and very thin cuts. I notice your website has one knife for sale, but I don’t think it is the same as the ones in this video. Let me know where I can purchase these two excellent knives. Thanks. Von
