A five tooth diamond chisel stitching 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 diamond chisel stitching irons are precision ground to perfection. They have a range of spacing options from 2.7mm to 5mm between each tooth.
Whether you buy your diamond chisel stitching irons here or elsewhere, be sure to choose the same teeth per inch for your other irons.
Diamond Stitching Chisels provide an alternate shaped hole from the traditional ‘straight slash’ of a pricking iron. While some people prefer the diamond shape of the stitching marks, they are commonly lower end tools with inconsistent spacing. These Diamond Stitching Chisel Irons are made with the same accuracy and quality as our regular pricking irons and provide more consistent stitch spacing and cleaner marks.
These Diamond Stitching Chisels are set with multiple teeth in a row, making it easier to produce beautiful straight lines of stitches. Diamond stitching chisels can mark the leather deeper than a wheel and make it easier to follow up with your leather awl when sewing. Using a diamond stitching chisel also helps maintain the sharpness of your sewing awl since the irons are doing most of the work.
