This European style pricking iron from Kyoshin Elle is great for producing stitching holes in your leather and has flat, diagonal prongs rather than diamond ones, giving your leathercraft stitching a unique and clean appearance. Fashioned from high-quality steel, this European style stitching punch is made in Japan to the same high standards as other Kyoshin Elle pricking irons. Available in various sizes and come in 1 prong, 2 prong, 4 prong, or 6 prong types (each sold separately). Collect them all so you can work in almost any thickness of leather.
This pricking iron is designed to produce a single flat hole, which is ideal for corners or custom spacing between holes, ensuring holes do not end up too far or too close to the stitch line's end.
Available prong numbers and sizes (each sold separately):
- Single Prong
- 2-Prong (3mm, 4mm, 4.5mm, 5mm)

When punching holes or removing this tool from your leather, keep it perpendicular to the leather and use a soft-headed hammer instead of a metal hammer to avoid damaging the tool. The highly tempered prongs of this superb tool have a dual purpose: They are not only extremely strong and well-suited for penetration, but they also protect your leatherwork from uneven stitching by breaking rather than bending when damaged. This feature prevents the pricking iron from creating uneven stitch holes, which can occur with cheaper pricking irons due to a bent prongs.
