French Edgers and Gouges


Gouges are used to remove leather for a few purposes. V-gouges and U-gouges remove leather from the flesh side for easier folding. Saddler's gouges are used to remove leather for folding or inlaying lacing or buckstitching.

Round Back/Round Bottom French Edgers

Round Bottom French Edgers are a little rarer to find. They cut a rounded profile on the bottom and are good for heavy edge beveling or to trim welts.

French Edgers

French Edgers are pushed and make a flat cut. They are used to cut miters for box corners, channels for folding, and can be used to thin or skive edges.
