About Leather Tools

Plain belts, dull work boots, and a hundred other everyday items are just waiting for a little creativity to turn them into something extraordinary. Leather tools open up the entire world of leatherworking, the art of shaping or carving leather while preserving its strength and material integrity. With an awl, special needles and tough fibrous threads, and leather hooks you can add new holes to belts, repair torn or damaged footwear or jackets, and decorate any leather surface with designs of your own invention. Leatherworking tools make it much easier to maintain and customize your leather clothes and accessories. Leather-stamping tools allow you to use heated surfaces to brand marks into leather without causing any significant burning, damage, or other distress to the material at hand. Not only is there a large array of creative applications for these tools, but they also represent a genuinely useful skill for someone who has to rely on their leather goods for work or a hobby. You can find leather tools in the vast inventory of leatherworking goods on eBay.
