As this tool's prongs are tempered, making them strong but brittle, they will break off instead of bending when overstressed. This is by design, to prevent the prongs from damaging your leatherwork by producing uneven stitch holes, which is the case with cheaper tools that bend rather than break. The tempered prongs offer two things, first, instead of bending, they break to protect your leatherwork from uneven stitching. Second, provides long-lasting tips that not only require less sharpening but also provide more lasting penetration. These features give the user peace of mind, knowing it will not damage the leathercraft you have spent so much time creating.
Please always use a soft-headed hammer whenever you are using this tool. Never shift it side to side when trying to remove it from your leather, always pull it with the tool perpendicular to your leather in order not to break the prongs. Never use it in thick leather that will make this tool hard to remove. Keep this tool away from other tools and materials. Lastly, do not drop or knock the prongs against a solid surface.
Keep out of the reach of children.
