Your work is stunning-- such precision and elegance!  I'd be proud to own a wallet like that! And maybe someday I can do so, if I keep practicing. :lol:

Very nice. I'm currently using the same sized thread, but 3.38mm spacing. I guess i'll need to step it down a level if I want to make mine look that fine. 

Do you use a heated edge creaser?

Yes, one that I heated over a gas stove, since I don't have an alcohol lamp yet. The creaser is from Wuta, as are the pricking irons.

I might have to pick one of them up too.

Do you use an awl as well? I have a set of the Wuta 3.38's and 3.85's, and they're narrow enough that I can punch all the way through up to about 3.5mm thick (after sharpening the prongs), so I never use an awl. Just wondering if that would still work if I go down to the 3.0's

Very very nice indeed! Did you use heat on the edge paint? The design is really nice as well. Your own? It is great to see what quality can be accomplished using more affordable tools. Much to be said for the talent as well.

No heat on the edges this time.

Yes, it's my own design.

Thank you for the kind words!
