Create professional-grade, diamond-shaped stitch holes with this pricking iron from Oka, a renowned manufacturer of premium leathercraft tools. Expert artisans forged this tool from high-quality materials and made the prongs sharp as possible so the holes it produces are clean and beautiful. The handle of this tool is knurled, making it non-slip, allowing for a better grip and providing comfort when using.

Use this 5-prong stitch punch when sewing leather in a straight line, producing five evenly sized diamond-shaped holes at a time. After creating the first set of holes, place one end of the tool's prong on the last hole created to make the next set evenly spaced. This 5.5mm pricking iron is available in 2, 4, and 5 prongs to produce stitch holes depending on your leatherwork needs (each sold separately).

Size (space between tips of prongs):

  • 5.5mm

Available prong numbers (each sold separately):

  • 2-prongs
  • 4-prongs
  • 5-prongs

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 undetected. The highly tempered prongs of this quality tool have a dual purpose: To protect your leatherwork from uneven stitching by having the prong break, rather than bend, when overstressed. Safeguarding you from uneven stitching of a bent tool, while giving longer lasting points that require less sharpening and greater penetrating power. This dual feature is of great benefit as it gives you peace of mind, knowing there is no chance of even a single uneven hole to ruin the leather masterpiece you've spent many hours working on.

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 shift 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.

Keep out of the reach of children.
