A beginners leather carving tutorial done with Viking style serpent knotwork. This obviously translates easily to celtic knots and is a good first step in learning to tool / carve leather.

Magnus shows you the tools needed, and takes you through the process from start to finish.


I've been carving leather for a while, sticking to knotwork for most of my projects, this specific carving will be used on a book cover.

It's the first video with my new Canon 80d setup, and I'm really enjoying the difference in quality, I hope you do too.


All the products I used that I could find links to are below. Picking any of them up helps the channel out.

If you are just seeing this video for the first time, where did it get pushed to you? This video is suddenly skyrocketing for some reason and I’m curious. Thanks!

I love that design. Artistry in leather it’s something I really admire. That and engraving on firearms. Thanks for the video I truly enjoyed it👍🏻

Have you ever seen a "Speed Beveler" It fits in your swivel knife - you may like it for the outside snake bevel.
