The Tools Of The Trade


These are a saddlemakers basic tools. The curved knives are for cutting hides and the more complicated object is for cutting strips of leather. The tools were made about 60 years ago, though the saddlemaker using them is much younger.

Thanks for showing the old tools. It makes one appreciate the craft even more.
I can almost smell the leather. Ahh.

Not for this one but your hands are shivering sometimes while taking photos. :)

Also, i hope to see the bigger forms of the photos as rss in Google Reader. They are so small.

I have a tremor in my right hand and my sometimes the "jiggle" correction on my camera doesn't make up for it. I don't know how to make the photos bigger on the RSS feed.
