Oka Reverse Blade Hole Punch 5mm 4 Prong Diamond Point Leather Pricking Iron Leathercraft Punch Stitching Chisel Leatherworking Sewing Tool
This reverse blade stitch punch marks and punches your leather for stitching, saving you time and effort from having to use other tools to create thread holes.
This 4-pronged reversed hole punch by Oka, a quality leather toolmaker from Japan, punches evenly spaced and sized stitching holes. This tool has been tempered and each prong has been honed individually by expert craftsman to provide you with outstanding and long-lasting service. This reversed leather stitch punch, similar to a conventional diamond hole punch, produces professional-grade stitch holes, making it excellent for hand stitching leather. This tool's knurled handle provides a better grip and allows you to grasp it firmly and securely while working on your leather projects.
This 4-prong reverse hole punch can be used to produce uniform, professional-grade stitching holes along the straight edges of your leather. Place a poundo board or any similar material beneath the leather before punching to protect your tool and workbench. Note: As a reversed pricking iron, the slant of the diamond holes will be in the opposite direction compared to holes produced by regular pricking irons.

Available prong numbers (each sold separately):
Please keep in mind that the prongs on this tool are heavily tempered, which makes them strong yet slightly brittle, causing prongs to snap off rather than bend when overstressed. This is by design, because the bent prongs of lower-quality pricking irons deform more quickly, potentially damaging your leatherwork by causing permanent uneven stitch holes if left unchecked.
Always use a soft-headed hammer and gently tap it into your leatherwork; when removing this tool, pull it straight out of your leatherwork; never move it side to side to release it as this may break the prongs. Avoid working with leather that makes it hard to remove; instead, use a larger pricking iron when working with thick leather. Keep this tool away from solid objects and other tools. Never drop or strike this tool on a hard surface.
