Round pricking irons Zakhmatov 6mm (Long teeth)
The set of Zakhmatov long teeth round pricking irons for leather made from U8 steel and interchangable teeth. Each punch has twisting teeth, which can be replaced in case of breakage or if it is necessary to install larger diameter teeth. Elongated teeth have a more sharper angle that makes it easier to punch holes in thicker leather.
- Prong's spacing: 6 mm
- Tooth (hole) diameter: 1mm
- Prongs qty: 2 + 6
One set has two punches that has 2 and 6 prongs and one extra tooth.
Please note the prongs are designed to snap, rather than bend, to give ultimate hardness and prevent undetected bent prongs from ruining your leatherwork. Therefore, always use a soft headed hammer or mallet (never metal) and tap it into your leather work gently.
When removing the prongs from your leather always pull it out of your leatherwork straight, never shift it side to side to loosen it or this could snap the prongs. It is recommended to lubricate your prongs with wax from time to time to allow for easier removal.
