Please note that you should always gently tap it into your leatherwork with a soft-head hammer, and that you should always remove it straight out of your leatherwork rather than twisting it side to side to loosen it, as this may cause the prongs to snap. It's best to avoid using leather that's too thick for this tool. If you're working with leather that's thick enough to make removal tough, you'll need a larger pricking iron. The prongs of this tool are tempered, which makes them incredibly robust yet brittle, so they will break off rather than bend if they are overstressed. This is by design, as cheaper pricking irons' bent prongs bend more quickly, possibly harming your leatherwork by causing permanent uneven stitch holes if the bent prongs are not noticed.
