Peachey hand-crafted knives are the best made leather paring knives on the market. Unlike the traditional English paring paring knives that require hours of sharpening, Peachey knives are fully sharpened and ready to use immediately. The handles are slightly contoured and covered with a leather for comfort. These knives are excellent for paring goatskin, chrome tanned leathers, abrasive calf and alum tawed skin. A leather blade cover is included. Fully sharpened at a 13 degree bevel angle. They measure approximately 7" x 1.5". Regularly honing your knife with a strop is recommended. Please note that English knives are specific to right handed or left handed.
