Example text

If the edge feels sharp at this stage, it is this jagged edge that feels sharp. This edge will quickly break off and leave an inferior edge. The burr must be removed to achieve a finely honed knife. This can be done in at least four ways. The first is to chop with the knife into a block of wood and draw the blade along its edge. This will break off the burr. The second is to do the same thing in a cake of lead. This breaks and somewhat bur­ nishes the edge. The third method is to use a machine-powered muslin buffing wheel to chip the burrs off and polish the edge.

Contact cement is a one­ chance operation: the parts cannot be shifted after the pieces are brought into contact. Be certain of what you're doing before you begin. The pieces may be clamped while dry­ ing but this is not usually necessary. Be careful to avoid spreading excess glue around the joint area since it's difficult to clean up. To ensure that contact is thorough, some leatherworkers use a mallet to pound the joint together. When the glue has set, which will take at least several hours, the bond is rein­ forced with stitches.

The preceding chapters have emphasized the toollike qualities of a knife. Decisions about materials, size, and shape are all made according to the function of the knife, the uses to which it will be put. In this way it is in the same class as a hammer or a wrench . One aspect of this toollike character is access, or the qual­ ity of being where needed when needed. To be practical, a fixed-blade knife must have a sheath . The only exception I can think of is a kitchen knife. The requirements of a sheath are pretty straightforward.
