Brass Hand Tool HT 1171/E
These tools are used for decorating leather and cloth surfaces. Our handtools are deeply engraved patterns on hard brass, with extra thick heads for better heat retention. The outside forms are cut closely to the design in order to improve the sighting. All handtools have a domed face which greatly aids 'putting the tool down', whilst giving more life to the binding than a flat tool can. If custom designs, or tools for restoration purposes are required, we can produce exact copies from artworks, good photocopies, photographs or pieces of leather from existing bindings.
