“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!


About customboots

I'm a custom cowboy boot maker. I own a business, Sorrell Custom Boots, and I create bespoke cowboy boots using vintage machinery and hand tools. I have no employees, but my daughter Paige works in my shop with me. She has her own business making ladies shoes.

    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!
