Expertly made from high quality ebony wood, and a machined brass ferrule, the business end of this tool is forged from 304 Stainless Steel. With its high nickle and high chromium content, 304 stainless steel is not only one of the most successful and corrosion-proof stainless steels on the market today, but it also has excellent heat retention qualities. This means you can heat the creasing edge of this leathercraft tool with a gentle flame until somewhat hot to the touch, before applying it to your leather to ensure more lasting results.
To use, simply adjust the blades to the desired width, and holding your leather firmly on a hard, flat surface, press the creasing blade down vertically on the edge of your leather, while using the other blade to guide your creasing along the outside edge of your leather, moving your leathercraft tool back and forth. Ensure a firm and steady grip to avoid slipping which may result in unintentional and unwanted creases.
