This high-quality tool is used to punch holes in the shape of a diamond, which is excellent for leather stitching. This tool is made of high-quality tool steel and will last for many years.
Kyoshin Elle's leather pricking iron (also known as a stitch punch) is produced in Japan of high-quality tool steel with exceptional hardness, providing it with outstanding penetrative and wear-resistant properties. This high-quality tool is used to punch holes in the shape of a diamond, which is excellent for leather stitching. The non-slip handle is ergonomically built to fit in your hand, allowing you to grip it securely and firmly while working.
When damaged, the precisely tempered prongs of this stitch punch protect your leatherwork from uneven stitching by breaking off rather than bending. Protecting you against uneven tool stitching while delivering longer-lasting points with less sharpening and greater penetration. Use this 4-prong punch to simply and neatly produce lengthy, consistent professional-grade stitching holes in your leather without the need for an awl.

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 prong.
