Looking for a conical leathercraft slicker / burnisher that is held to the highest levels of quality workmanship and materials? Then this multi size burnishing and slicking tool is just what you're looking for. This outstanding leathercraft tool is perfect for edge slicking various thicknesses of leather with the multi size channels, edge burnishing with the flat edge of the tool, burnishing the inside hard to reach places with the conical end, or moulding both inside and outside with the round end.
Ebony block burnishers and slim ebony burnishers by FLINT are available separately.
To use, simply apply your favourite burnishing gum (Craft Sha burnishing gum is recommended) to the untreated flesh side, or edge of your vegetable tanned leather generously and evenly, before firmly, and vigorously rubbing your leather with this tool. To burnish the flat side of your leather, place your leather (flesh side up) on a hard surface and rub until the fibres are flattened and a smooth sheen is achieved. For edge slicking, with burnishing gum applied to the edge of your leather, insert the leather into the groove that snuggly fits, but does not pinch, your leather and vigorously run back and forth until a smooth, burnished edge is obtained.
