Description

Our one tooth awl stitching chisel iron allows you to make single stitch marks, which is especially useful when creating stitches at corners where the larger irons don’t end exactly at the corner. You can also use a single tooth iron when you need to make a small line of stitches that need to be custom spaced to fit with the design of your piece. This one tooth iron matches with our other mm-based thonging irons.

These awl stitching chisel 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 awl stitching chisel irons here or elsewhere, be sure to choose the same teeth per inch for your other irons.

Usage

Similar to the diamond chisels, these Awl Stitching Chisels provide an alternate shaped hole from the traditional ‘straight slash’ of a pricking iron. They make a small single point hole for straight stitches. The pointed shape of the teeth allows more concentrated force to be put into each mark. This results in deeper penetrating marks helping you to punch through several layers of leather at once.

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.
