I'm not a big fan of cutting with hobby blades, so I was slightly skeptical at first that the Kiwi could be great for leatherwork.  But, for $25, I figured it was worth it to pick one up to test.  After easily navigating the first few tight-curved pieces of a shoe pattern, my skepticism began to fade.  By the time I was done cutting all 20+ pieces, all of the pieces were precisely cut, and I had none of the hand fatigue I'm so used to.  I was totally sold and decided to add the Kiwi to DLS' lineup.  

Kiwi 2.0
Kiwi 2.0 is made from injected molded Arcylic, making it virtually invincible.  A magnet was designed to hold together all of the necessary mechanics, and even allows you to store your Kiwi in unconventional places (like, on metal table legs...or most other metal stuff).

Plywood
The Plywood model is by far the most popular handle.  Made from airplane-grade plywood, each Kiwi is comprised of 104 interlocking layers for maximum durability.  

This kiwi is sealed with 3 layers of polyurethane, then finished with 1,000 grit to highlight the beautiful grain unique to this industrial material.

Bocote
People commonly admire the tactile experience of picking up the Bocote Kiwi.  Bocote is a hardwood native to Central America with one of the most beautiful grain patterns we have ever seen.  It is naturally a heavier hardwood, which is evident when holding this Kiwi.

PaperStone
We are in love with the tactility of this beautiful handle… it feels like stone yet made from compressed paper.  PaperStone is a sustainable alternative to stone, traditionally used as an architectural material, especially for counter tops. It has the genuine hand-feel of stone, yet the magic is that it’s made from compressed, recycled paper and a non-petroleum resin. It’s exceptional durability and unique finish is the reason why we are so excited about it!


Each Kiwi comes with 5 Excel #2 blades (Kiwi also works with Xacto #2 blades) and a storage pouch.
