Please keep in mind that the professional nature of this product needs extra attention. Always use a soft-headed hammer and gently tap it into your leatherwork; when removing, always take it straight out of your leatherwork; never rock it side to side to release it as this might break the prongs. Avoid using leather that is so thick that it is hard to extract, a larger pricking iron is recommended when working with leather thick enough that this tool may be difficult to remove. Keep this tool away from other tools or solid objects. Never drop or strike this tool on a hard surface.
Please note that the prongs on this tool are highly tempered, which makes them extremely strong but also slightly brittle, so that overstressed prongs will break off rather than bend. This is by design, as bent prongs of poorer quality pricking irons deform more quickly, potentially damaging your leatherwork by generating permanent uneven stitch holes if the bent prongs go unchecked.
