Leather Working Tools

Students who attend courses can buy from our small range of tools and materials when they come to the workshop. Over the years we have found it necessary to have certain tools made to our patterns and specifications.

We take care to set awl blades in small awl handles and polish each facet so they penetrate the leathers easily. The Knives are sharpened and the ‘Spring dividers’ are polished and finished ready for use.

Tools made for us in the UK include:

  • Stitching clams – made from layers of laminated beech.The pressure of the jaws can be adjusted
  • Paring Knives – are hand tempered
  • Edge Beveller – shaped and polished, the cutting edge is sharpened
  • Race – sharpened and polished

Other tools and materials have been sourced from further afield including linen threads and awl handles from France; awl blades and needles from Germany . We also now have pricking irons specially made for us to our specification.

Our range of tools and materials will soon be available to buy online.Watch this space ! If you sign up to our mailing list you will receive notification .
