Curved Lip Leather Knife

Curved lip knives, usually made of steel, are often used by cobblers doing shoe repair. Often designed to be right or left handed for use, they have a uniquely shaped bent tip with a sharp edge that allows for easy trimming of show soles.

It is important to find one with a comfortable handle that fits well within the hand. This is not as common as other leather cutting tools, and usually intended for specialized uses.
