Perfect fit! Skiving leather is the process of shaving away the back of a piece to make it thinner. There are a variety of reasons you’d want to do this to a work piece, but in this case, I needed to make a loop to feed through a clip that you’ll see later. When the leather meets itself again, I wanted the thickness to be equal to that of the body of the collar on the left. I’ve always hated the inconsistency that I get with the variety of hand skiving tools that are available so I picked up a leather spitter from @tandyleather that made my life far easier. With one pull, the splitter achieves a clean, even new thickness that’s repeatable and fast.. money well spent! . #Leather #LeatherWork #DogCollar #Making #Maker #MakeSomething #Tandy #Loop
