Kyoshin Elle Leathercraft Tool 2x3mm European Style Stitching Chisel 2-Prong Leather Pricking Iron, to Punch Sewing Holes in Leatherworking
This high-quality pricking iron is ideal for punching diagonal holes, which is particularly useful for sewing leather. This tool is constructed of high-quality steel and will last for many years.
This European-style pricking iron by Kyoshin Elle is perfect for making stitching holes in your leather, and it features flat, diagonal prongs instead of diamond ones, giving your leathercraft stitching a distinctive and clean look. This European style stitching punch is constructed in Japan to the same high standards as other Kyoshin Elle pricking irons from high-quality steel. Available in a variety of sizes and with one, two, four, or six prongs (each sold separately). Collect them all so you can deal with leather of almost any thickness.
This two-prong European style pricking iron is ideal for producing stitch holes around curves or for adding thread holes in smaller increments.
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)
Because the prongs of this tool are highly tempered, making them hard yet brittle, they will break off rather than bend when overworked. This is due to the design, which prevents it from causing uneven thread holes in your leatherwork. The tempered prongs have two benefits. First, rather than bending, they snap off to safeguard your leatherwork from uneven stitching, which is not the case with cheaper pricking irons that bend and ruin your leatherwork with uneven stitch holes. Second, it offers long-lasting tips that not only require less honing but also have more penetrating force. These qualities provide the user with piece of mind, knowing that it will not harm the leathercrafts they have worked so hard to create.
If you use this tool, be sure you use a soft-headed hammer. To prevent breaking the prongs, never pull it side to side when attempting to extricate it from your leather; instead, draw it perpendicular to the leather with the tool. A larger size may be suitable if you find it difficult to remove from your leather. Keep this tool at a safe distance from other tools and materials. Finally, try not to drop it or strike it against a hard surface.
