To use this Stitching Groover & Creaser, first, choose the proper blade for your application. Then using the Allen Key, loosen the screw at the edge of the tool to insert the blade you are going to use before tightening the screw in place. Hold the handle firmly then place the metal stitching guide (adjusted for depth) outside the leather edge and the blade on the surface of the leather edge you're going to mark. Angle the tool at a 30 to 45 degree, then run the tool along with the leather, smoothly while applying constant pressure, taking care not to slip from your chosen track. Add more pressure to make more deep grooves and creases. You can also adjust the metal guide depending on whether you are left or right handed. Just flip the metal guide then insert it back into the tool. This Pro Stitching Groover can also be used as a freehand creaser, groover, or scratch awl.
Please note: The blades are small and sharp, keep away from reach of children.
