Kyoshin Elle's three prong, 6mm diamond point pricking iron is made in Japan, and is excellent for making short, straight stitch lines in your leathercraft project. This tool is highly tempered, which results in excellent toughness of the prongs, great for leatherworking. Punch stitch holes through your work using this tool so that you may sew consistent, regularly spaced, and symmetrically slanted stitches. This tool has an anti-slip handle that provide a secure grip and provides comfort when using, which is very useful if you spend a lot of time creating stitch holes for your leather projects. This leathercraft tool forged from high-quality materials and is produced to the highest standards in Japan.
This leather stitch punch has been tempered and quenched, resulting in excellent hardness and sharpness and is ideally suited for punching straight lines on smaller leather items or stitch lines. Unlike other pricking irons, this stitch punch is designed to pierce leather, eliminating the need for an awl and drastically shortening the time it takes to produce stitch holes.

Please note that this tool's prongs are highly tempered, which makes them strong but slightly brittle, thus overstressed prongs break off rather than bend. This is by design, allowing the prongs to snap off rather than bend, as bent prongs could potentially damage your leatherwork by generating permanent uneven stitch holes if the bent prongs go unnoticed.
Please keep in mind that the professional nature of this product necessitates extra attention. Always use a soft-headed hammer (never a metal hammer) and gently tap it into your leatherwork. When removing, always take this tool straight out of your leatherwork, never move it side to side to release it as this might break the prongs. Please keep this tool away from other tools and other objects, and do not drop or strike it on a hard surface.
