Because this tool is highly tempered, the prongs of this tool will break off rather than bend when incorrectly stressed because they are strong but delicate. This is due to the design, which eliminates uneven thread holes in your leatherwork, which can happen with undetected bends in the prong that may occur with lower quality tools. The tempered prongs serve two purposes. First, they snap rather than bend, safeguarding your leatherwork from uneven stitching. Second, it provides long-lasting tips with more penetrating strength that require less honing. These features provide the user peace of mind, knowing that their leathercrafts, which they have spent a long time perfecting, would not be damaged by this tool.
When using this tool, please always use a soft-headed hammer instead of a metal one. When attempting to remove it from your leather, never shift it from side to side; instead, pull it with the tool perpendicular to your leather to avoid breaking the prongs. Should you find it difficult to remove this tool from your leather, consider using a larger size of pricking iron. Store this tool separately from other tools and materials to avoid damage. Finally, do not drop it or strike it on a solid surface.
