“Skiving” is thinning the edge of leather at an angle, using a very sharp knife. It’s difficult to learn and takes years to master. I’m proud of Paige for being a very good skiver!

    So great of you to pass down your talent to your daughter! Skiving is an amazing thing to be able to do. I wish I could get custom made boots made exclusively for me one day! Good luck with your family business!
