Sharp, straight out the packaging, this quality pricking iron will punch the perfect stitch holes in your leather. With only 2.5mm between the points, this pricking iron will produce some of the finest stitching available. This high quality pricking iron measures 2.5mm between the tips of the prongs, and is perfect for going around curves or short distances. This two prong pricking iron is part of Seiwa's 2.5mm pricking iron family, and is available in 1, 2, 3, 4 and 6 prongs.
Great for use as a pricking iron to mark where to punch holes with your awl, or as a stitching punch to penetrate actual stitch holes in your leather.
Please note, the highly tempered prongs of this quality tool have a dual purpose: To protect your leatherwork from uneven stitching by having the prong break, rather than bend, when overstressed. Safeguarding you from uneven stitching of a bent tool, while giving longer lasting points that require less sharpening and greater penetrating power. This dual feature is of great benefit as it gives you peace of mind, knowing there is no chance of even a single uneven hole to ruin the leather masterpiece you've spent many hours working on.
Please note, the professional nature of this tool means it requires special care. Always use a soft headed hammer (never metal) and tap it into your leather work gently, when removing, always pull it out of your leatherwork straight, never shift it side to side to loosen it or this could snap the prongs. Avoid using leather that is so thick it makes removal difficult. If you work with leather that is thick enough to make removal difficult then a wider pricking iron is recommended. Please store this tool away from other tools or hard objects, do not drop this tool or strike on a hard surface.
The size of this tool is compatible with other 2.5mm Seiwa / Kyoshin Elle Stitching Punches and nippers.
