Please note, the prongs on this tool are highly tempered, which makes them very hard, but somewhat brittle, so that overstressed prongs would break off, rather than bend. This is by design, as bent prongs of lower quality pricking irons deform more easily, not only ruining the tool, but also have the potential to ruin your leatherwork by producing permanent uneven stitch holes if the bent prongs go undetected.
Please note, the professional nature of this tool means it requires special care. Always use a soft headed hammer (never metal) and tap it into your leather work gently, when removing, always pull it out of your leatherwork straight, never rock it side to side to loosen it or this could snap the prongs. Avoid using leather that is so thick it makes removal difficult. If you work with leather that is thick enough to make removal difficult then a wider pricking iron is recommended. Please store this tool away from other tools or hard objects, do not drop this tool or strike on a hard surface.
Keep out of the reach of children.
