Leather-working in my study London Wanstead 14-02-15


This was a pretty drawknife from a coppice workers tool-bag.

There is something very much about a Christmas Island crab with this design.

I visited J T Batchelors on Friday and bought some pre-waxed nylon thread, normally I use Barbour flax No.18.

John Burbage was using it at the last leather-working day in Benenden I was impressed, it is a lot thicker but does go into standard needles.

Looks a bit grumpy to me, let’s hope the new owner will like it.
