    How wide is that splitter blade?

  2. #22
    About inch and a half. I need to split 1/2 - 5/8 wide strips of leather for scabbard straps.

    This splitter was completely disassembled, sand-blasted, repainted and now it is in a top-notch working condition. I am not sure how old it is, but won't be surprised if it is 100 years old or maybe older. Mechanically it is as sound as the day it was made. Love old US-made equipment.

    Nice restoration, I love tools! How's the blade on that old one, good shape or did you have to fix or make a new one?

    The blade is OK, but short, so it needs to be shimmed to get it close to the leather. I will end up making a new one at some point.
