This Seiwa / Kyoshin Elle pricking iron works well as a stitch punch to guarantee that your leather is left with precise and easy-to-sew holes. Please note that these measurements are taken between the prongs, as opposed to the way Craft Sha holes are measured (distance between the edges of the prongs). Seiwa irons are compatible with Craft sha using the following data: Craft Sha 1.5mm = Seiwa 3mm, Craft Sha 2mm = Seiwa 4mm, Craft Sha 2.5mm = Seiwa 5mm, Craft Sha 3mm = Seiwa 6mm
You're looking at a brand new Seiwa / Kyoshin Elle 4mm or seven holes per inch (distance between the points of the iron) 6 prong stitching punch that's an excellent way to ensure your stitching is smooth and even (hole compatible with other Seiwa / Kyoshin Elle 4mm irons).
This high-quality tool is used to punch holes in the shape of a diamond, which is ideal for sewing leather. This high carbon steel tool is made in Japan to the highest standard and will last a lifetime. Most pricking irons are available in 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6 prong versions and are spaced in 3mm, 4mm, 5mm and 6mm.
Collect them all for the ultimate in stitching versatility in any thickness of leather!
Please note 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 note the size is compatible with other 4mm Seiwa / Kyoshin Elle Stitching Punches and nippers, 2mm Craft Sha Pricking Irons, or other nine holes per inch diamond hole pricking irons only.
