Edging tools are excellent for rounding off the sharp corners that are found on the cut edges of thicker leathers. After cutting a strip to make a belt, dog collar etc, the next stage is to round off the corners using an edge tool, otherwise known as an edge shave.
This is a No4 hollow ground edge tool, our largest size, which takes off a substantial amount from the corners of your strips. We'd recommend this size for the very thickest leathers and for situations where you want to completely remove the corner of your leather, for a very rounded look and feel.
Hollow ground means that there is a dent in the back of the tool, which helps you to align it at the right angle on the edge of your leather strip, making this a very easy tool to get to grips with.
