Please note always use a soft headed hammer (never metal) and tap it into your leather work gently, when removing, always pull it out of your leatherwork straight, never shift it side to side to loosen it or this could snap the prongs. Avoid using leather that is so thick it makes removal difficult. If you work with leather that is thick enough to make removal difficult then a wider pricking iron is recommended.
Please note the size is compatible with other 3mm Seiwa / Kyoshin Elle Stitching Punches and nippers, 1.5mm Craft Sha Pricking Irons, or other nine holes per inch diamond hole pricking irons only.
