A five tooth thonging iron is a great starter tool for smaller leather goods. Pair this with a two tooth iron for curves and a ten tooth iron for medium to large projects.

These thonging irons are precision ground to perfection. They have a range of spacing options from 3.0mm to 4.5mm between each tooth.


Thonging irons create a horizontal hole that allows you to use leather lacing instead of thread. Their small punch size also enables you to use thread with these irons and create a straight stitch in a grooved channel.

Thonging irons are set with multiple teeth in a row, making it easier to produce beautiful straight lines of stitches. thonging irons can mark the leather deeper than a wheel and make it easier to follow up with your leather awl when sewing. Using a thonging iron also helps maintain the sharpness of your sewing awl since the irons are doing most of the work.


When comparing Korean and French thonging iron or wheel sizes, use the conversion list below:


3.0mm = Number 9
3.4mm = Number 8
3.8mm = Number 7
4.5mm = Number 6
