Leathercraft Chisels.

Leathercraft chisels, also known as leather punches or pricking irons, are tools used to create precise and evenly spaced holes in leather. These holes can then be used to stitch pieces of leather together or to add decorative elements such as patterns or designs.

Leathercraft chisels come in a variety of shapes and sizes, with different numbers of tines or teeth depending on the desired hole spacing. The tines of the chisel are usually sharp and tapered to make clean cuts in the leather.

There are different types of chisels that serve different purposes in leather work. Some common types of chisels include:

  1. Stitching chisels: These chisels have multiple tines and are used to create evenly spaced holes for stitching pieces of leather together.
  2. Pricking irons: These chisels have fewer tines and are used to create smaller and more precise holes, often for decorative purposes or to mark out patterns or designs.
  3. Slot punches: These chisels have a single tine and are used to create long narrow slots in leather. These slots can then be used to weave leather strips together or to add decorative elements.

Leathercraft chisels can be used by hand, but many leather workers also use them with a mallet or hammer to make the cutting process easier and more efficient. The quality and sharpness of the chisels can also impact the result, so it's important to use high-quality tools and maintain them properly.
