The non-slip handle fits comfortably in your hand, allowing you to grip it securely and firmly during use. This tool's prongs are sharpened individually to ensure it will leave clean, diamond-shaped holes every time.

When overused, the prongs of this tool will break off rather than bend because they are tempered, making them robust yet brittle. This is due to the design, which prevents it from causing uneven thread holes in your leatherwork. The tempered prongs do two things: First, the prongs snap instead of bending, protecting your leatherwork from uneven stitching that may occur with an undetected bent prong, which is a possibility with lesser quality tools. Second, it offers long-lasting tips that require less sharpening and have more penetration. These characteristics provide the user peace of mind, knowing that their leathercrafts, which they have spent so much time developing, will not be harmed.
To avoid breaking the prongs, always use a soft-headed hammer, never pull it side to side while trying to extract it from your leather; instead, pull it with the tool perpendicular to the leather. Never use this tool on leather so thick that difficult to remove, and please opt for a large size in such a case. Finally, avoid dropping or hitting it against a hard surface.
Keep out of the reach of children.
