When using this tool, always use a soft-headed hammer (never a metal one) and gently tap it into your leatherwork. When removing it, always pull it straight out of your leatherwork; never twist it side to side to loosen it or the prongs may break. Avoid using leather that is so thick that it is difficult to remove. A larger pricking iron is advised if you work with leather that is thick enough to make removal difficult. Please keep this tool away from other tools and other objects, and do not drop or hit it against a hard surface.
Please keep in mind that the prongs on this tool are highly tempered, which makes them extremely strong yet brittle, and overstressed prongs will break off rather than bend. This is by design, because the bent prongs of lower-quality pricking irons bend more quickly, potentially damaging your leatherwork by causing permanent uneven stitch holes if left unchecked. This tool's finely tempered prongs have a dual purpose: they safeguard your leatherwork from uneven stitching by breaking rather than bending when overstressed, while providing longer-lasting points that require less sharpening and have better penetrating force while protecting you from uneven stitching of a bent tool. This dual function is extremely useful since it provides you peace of mind, knowing that even a single irregular hole will not harm the leather masterpiece you've spent so much time creating.
