When punching holes or removing this tool from your leather, keep it perpendicular to your leather and use a soft-headed hammer instead of a metal hammer to avoid damaging the tool. The heavily tempered prongs of this tool have a dual purpose: not only are they extremely strong and ideal for penetration, but they also protect your leatherwork from uneven stitching by breaking, rather than bending, when overstressed. This prevents the pricking iron from creating uneven stitch holes, which can occur with cheaper pricking irons due to an undetected bent prong.
