Kyoshin Elle Leathercraft Sewing Tool Stitching Chisel 2x4.5mm European Style 2-Prong Pricking Iron, to Punch Stitch Slits in Leather
With its flat, diagonal prongs, this European-style leather stitching chisel can generate neat, professional-grade slits in your leather.
Leave two evenly sized stitch holes on your leather with this European-style stitch punch from Kyoshin Elle. This tool punches flat, diagonal stitch holes, which are perfect for hand leather stitching and provide your leather products with a distinct look. This pricking iron was designed to have a knurled handle for an improved grip and control when aligning and punching holes in your leather. This tool, along with other Kyoshin Elle pricking irons, is made in Japan from high-quality materials, will produce extremely clean stitches, and will provide many years of service.
This 2-prong European style pricking iron is great for punching sewing holes around corners and is also useful when you need slits on tiny spaces such as in small leathercrafts.
Available prong numbers and sizes (each sold separately):
- Single Prong
- 2-Prong (3mm, 4mm, 4.5mm, 5mm)
- 4-Prong (3mm, 4mm, 4.5mm, 5mm)
- 6-Prong (3mm, 4mm, 4.5mm, 5mm)
Please note, the prongs on this tool are highly tempered, which makes them very hard, but somewhat brittle, so that overstressed prongs would break off, rather than bend. This is by design, as bent prongs of lower quality pricking irons deform more easily, not only ruining the tool, but also have the potential to ruin your leatherwork by producing permanent uneven stitch holes if the bent prongs go undetected.
Please note, the professional nature of this tool means it requires special care. 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 rock 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 store this tool away from other tools or hard objects, do not drop this tool or strike on a hard surface.
