This is a special edition of the Vergez Blanchard Paring Knife which utilizes a harder steel called High Speed Steel (HSS). This allows you to hone the knife sharper edge that also lasts longer.
Paring knives are used for shaving thin layers off of leather and ours have a wide edge ground to an angle with a flatter handle for working closer to the surface of your piece. Skiving is normally done to edges for gluing and stitching two pieces of leather together so that their combined thickness equals the thickness of the rest of the piece.
Available in right and left handed versions.
