I love a European pricking chisel, especially among them J.Dixon. I'm trying to collect them. I want to buy or exchange what I have to own it. Please tell me if you want to sell them.

The old ones are not easy to find.  If you already have all of those in the photos, you likely have more than most of us.

Abbey England has some new versions made in the same style, but not Dixon branded.  I believe made by some of the original Dixon employees.

Occasionally one will pop up in Ebay, but they go for a premium.

These olds could not find. Nếu bạn đã có tất cả những người trong ảnh, bạn có thể có nhiều hơn hầu hết chúng ta.

Abbey England có một số phiên bản mới được làm theo cùng một phong cách, nhưng không phải nhãn hiệu Dixon. I was tin được thực hiện bởi một số nhân viên ban đầu của Dixon.

Thỉnh thoảng một trong những người sẽ bật lên trong Ebay, nhưng họ đi cho một bảo hiểm phí. YinTx

Oh no,:( I do not currently have any dixon chisels. All picture on google . 

This is what I am having :wacko:

The first set you show a photo of is quite nice, resembles the Kyoshin Elle stitching irons that have been discontinued here.  Best of luck to you, I hope you are able to find the irons you are looking for.  Ebay has been best to find old leather tools, but you don't know the quality until it is in your hands!

Honestly condolences you, 

Are you affected by house fire?
 

It has stopped production, 

I bought it by a local leather man, it was an item used, bought for $ 25, side 2.7mm :D
Its quality is good, I think I will collect more if any

Respect. @YinTx

Thank you for that.  The fire was over a year ago, we have since recovered.

I suspected those irons were no longer being manufactured.  I have kept my eye out for used irons available as well, and hope to buy when I see one available.  You may more likely find them in your area than I in mine!

ohh hhihi :D i live in VietNam, There are many people who own this EMS chisel. But in return, no one owns the Dixon pricking chisel :( so it's hard for me to buy. I have talked to some people make handmade leather, they live in europe. They said that I should go to the saddle shop, and pick the trays there will be lucky to find, but unfortunately I live in VietNam is not Europe: (( 

If you know anyone who sells let me know, I'm grateful for that
Respect.

Try Booth Tools. Booth carried some while Dixon was still in business. They may have some left.

oh, I heard Dixon, they stopped making leather tools. So where does your website sell Dixon tools, and is it a replica of Dixon?

Those certainly make a nice stitch.  Did you use an awl with that, or did you try to punch all the way through with the stitching iron?  I found I had to be very careful not to go too far into the leather, as the outer tines tended to make a wider hole than the rest if I did go too far - you can see that it will happen by looking at the profile of the outermost tines in the image of the iron.

Still, I really liked them.  They had a solid feel, and left perfectly sized and angled impressions for a great stitch.  I hope to find a new set sometime.. they are not readily available here anymore.
