Your Place for Vintage Leather Tools
Whether you're a hobbiest just starting out or a veteran leatherworker looking for quality tools to add to your workbench, I can help you find the appropriate tool. From Sauerbier and Harrington to Gomph and Osborne, I scour the planet for vintage and antique leather tools, refurbish and restore them, and then list them here on my site for sale.
My name is Bruce Johnson. I have been working with leather for over twenty-five years and this my website. Please feel free to browse the tools listed for sale, view samples of my leather work, and check out some of the tutorials listed on the site.
Keep an eye on this space as I plan to add some featured tools that come along, either for sale, or that may have already been sold, but exceptional or rare and worth a look. Click the images to see more detail.
