  1. This set of pricking irons has been sold. Thanks for looking. Kevin
  2. Posted to eBay as well: http://ebay.us/FxpoGM?cmpnId=5338273189 Thanks for looking, Kevin
  3. Price drop to US$ 180 Shipped and insured to a US address by US Priority Mail. Thanks, Kevin
  4. Beautiful design. Thanks for sharing the build process. The time spent with your dad putting this together is an inspiration. Kevin
  5. Thanks for the pattern, it will be interesting trying it with different leathers to see how they work for the application to support the phone. It will be a good learning exercise for personal use.
  6. The titanium is a design choice as is pointed out in the video. It does provide a balanced and lightweight feel that still has solidity to it. I look forward to trying it out to see if it offers less fatigue due to the lightness. Part of the allure of leatherwork for me is the vast array of tools, leathers and techniques that are only limited by the imagination. There are some tools that fit better and just feel right... Some leathers would make great belts and terrible wallets... Would a different tool, leather or technique work better? I am sure enjoying the adventure of trying them. ;-) Enjoy, Kevin
  7. For comparison, the first file (IMG_0713) is a comparison between the Douglas awl and the RMLeatherworking Titanium Awl: The second file (IMG__0717) shows a closeup of the tip: The third file (IMG_0728) shows the spare blade: Enjoy. Kevin
  8. Selling my #9 Vergez Blanchard Pricking Iron Set with 10 and 2 tooth irons. Purchased in October 2014 from Aaron at RM Leatherworking. Current price from RMLeatherworking is $249. These have been used on one Kangaroo wallet and one Perlinger notebook cover. I am in process of switching to Doldokki tools and would like someone to get use out of these great tools. Price Shipped and insured to the US by US Priority Mail is $200. Thanks for looking and have a great holiday! Kevin
  9. I have found my subscription to Nigel Armitage's (Dangerous Beans) Vimeo series of 57 videos valuable for things like this. Episode 20 covers Strap end punch centering and Episode 21 covers Using a crew bag oblong punch. Information is available at: https://vimeo.com/ondemand/armitageleather. Well worth the small monthly fee of less than US$4.00 Enjoy, Kevin

    Here is where I found them: https://www.rmleathersupply.com/collections/tools/products/ks-blade-punch-brogue-punch... Aaron from Rocky Mountain Leather is good to work with. Kevin
  11. I am curious since this is posted in the for sale things that cut area of the forum... Is this item for sale and still available? If so, what is the price? Thank you, Kevin
  12. I have found that RM Leather Supply carries one that looks almost identical to the Eprose one at a fraction of the cost. You can see it here: https://www.rmleathersupply.com/collections/tools/products/edge-paint-roller. At $24.99 it is a lot more affordable to try it out. Enjoy, Kevin
  13. The tool used looks like one from a French company Eprose. You can see it here: http://www.eprose.fr/hand-use-pen-kit-for-dying-edges.html They have some great tools but are pricey. Kevin
  14. I have used US Plastic to get mine. Here is a link to an example: https://www.usplastic.com/catalog/item.aspx?itemid=35220&catid=705 They have various materials and thicknesses. Enjoy, Kevin
  15. Hi, Have you looked at http://www.lekoza.com? They have Vergez Blanchard (VB) oblong hole punches and if you are looking for something smaller, contact forum member Matt T who owns Lekoza and he can order the VB oval punches. You just have to be patient as they will be added to a future order and may take a few weeks to arrive. I have ordered from him before and found his service to be as promised. I have just ordered a couple of items from him from VB that he doesn't normally stock and he gave me an estimated lead time. Kevin
