The hollow design of the handle moves down the center of gravity
of the tool, making it more stable when punching, and it is
particularly easy to pull out the pricking iron. These irons pierce the
leather all the way through and create a hole to stitch through.

Subsequent treatment process:
Vacuum Heat Treatment: Compared with ordinary heat treatment,
vacuum heat treatment has stronger stability and less deformation.
Liquid Nitrogen(The cryogenic process): makes the crystal more
We recommend using the OKA Cutting Board with our Pricking Hollows.
Made in 440c stainless steel: High-carbon, high-chromium stainless
steel by Hitachi Japan, excellent rust resistance, high hardness, wear
resistance, and toughness.

I really love these pricking irons. They go in and out of the leather very smooth, the handling is great and they are very well finished. The holes are quite small and perfect for fine seams with fine thread, but also thicker threads are not a problem if you wide the wholes a bit with an awl. Looking forward for my next set with another spacing.
