Kyoshin Elle Leathercraft Tool 2x5mm European Style Stitching Chisel 2-Prong Leather Pricking Iron, to Punch Sewing Holes in Leatherworking
For your leather projects, this European-style leather stitching chisel can make clean, professional-grade stitch holes thanks to its flat, diagonal prongs.
If you want to make professional-looking stitching holes in your leather, this European-style pricking iron by Kyoshin Elle is the one for you. This tool has flat, diagonal prongs instead of a diamond shape finish to give your leathercraft creations a unique appearance. This European-style stitching punch is forged from quality steel and is made to the same standards as other Kyoshin Elle pricking irons. This tool also features a knurled handle to provide better grip and control when in use.
This two-prong European style pricking iron is excellent if you need to produce stitch holes around curves or to add thread holes in smaller spaces in your leathercraft.
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.
