I can't tell you how many times, I've watched this video. Not in order to make a sporran, but to pick up on some of the techniques, that he uses. Every time I watch it I pick up something new. First of all I know, that I've got to buy a head knife at some point and learn firstly how to sharpen it and then how to use it correctly without cutting off any limbs.
I hope, that you can get something out of this video, even if you don't work with leather.
Luckily someone uploaded the video to Vimeo, which makes sharing a lot easier. The original can be found here.
