The bottom line I see it is that I am estatic the Tandy finally after 30 years took a step to quality. I am perplexed that they would be selling Chinese mass produced for more money than Barry sells USA make quality. If you get best price they are a savings, If you pay full price they are more than Barry.

I ordered some stuff from Springfield leather and decided to be brave and order one of there brade stamps for $13.99 foreign made not stainless not shure what kind of finish the tool has but looks nice. It stamps sharp and smooth and is superior to your standard Tandy. I like the tool but wish it was US made.
To be truthfull I took a piece of leather that I had stamped with vieners, camoflauge, mule foot Tandy stamps and took them with me to the store I bought the Hackbarth and Hidecrafter stamps and decided in some cases with some old and some new Tandy stamps I could not justify in anyway to spend the money to repace them. Some Tandys are very nice and cheaper. To me it would be like spending an extra $30 for a Tshirt with a fancy brand name to look like the cool kids. My advice is if you can test drive the tool before you buy it. I realise for most people this is hard to do. I did go through my rack of stamps and seperate the good from the bad. Now I have a rack of favorites and a rack of look before you leap stamps.
I hope this helps somebody. I wish somebody made sharp looking basketweaves for around $25 because that's seems like a fair price to me.

they are made from stainless and not chrome plated so they will basically last forever pending a nuclear blast
they are however a bit pricey so the level of use would dictate whether or notsomeone would need to buy the stamps.
I also used the small pro swivel knife with the angled blade and I really love the feel and its precision.If I did leatherwork for a living I would love to have these tools however I do pretty well with the regular craft tools.

The Tandy Craftool Pro stamps are coming on sale in April for $16.99 each at elite pricing. They have some new floral craftaids too that look pretty good.
Thanks for the heads up. Ill have to look at the craftaids

if you have a tandy gold club membership you can get wholesale pricing for the tools and they are very nice stamps the wholesale price range for the sheridan tools are $15.00 to $19.00 they are stainless with a gun metal finish and have a life time guarantee.
their standard crafttool stamps are $5.49 with wholesale pricing and SLC offers many that are no longer available through TLC
SLC is just far better all around to purchase tools and supplies from.
