Pricking Irons Ready To Ship

These pricking irons are unlike what you can commonly find else where. Although You could argue that matte black pricking irons or pricking irons with a hollow cut out on the handle isn't uncommon. However, where my irons truly shine is with every precaution I take to accentuate the fundamentals.

Steel Treatment

Medical grade 440C stainless steel, vacuum heat treated, and deep cryogenic treatment as a cherry on the cake.

About the sharpening

I hand sharpen, hone and polish each and every teeth up to my personal standard. My attention to detail in my hand sharpening is complemented by the increased toughness and edge retention from my carefully orchestrated steel treatment processes

Why is it Matte Black?!

The matte black finish is achieved through Quench Polish Quench (QPQ). Unlike commonly seen coated, chemical treated or electroplated finishes, QPQ is a case hardening method that increases corrosion resistance and surface hardness of the native material, not only it is pretty to look at and hold, it actually serves a purpose! Also happens to be damn expensive too :(

Give your maul a break...

As much as I love my mauls, these irons render them almost redundant on thinner leather. Terrific tools!

Jesse Holm

I have used pricking irons from different suppliers over the years and these are the best I've tried. Teeth shape is really uniform and they come sharpened and polished straight out the box. Strongly recommended!

Chris Guison
Great craftsmanship

I love these irons. sharp and they release from the leather with ease. I will order in different sizes once available!
