In spite of unseasonal California rain, rain gutters plugged with leaves, and reinstalling the downspout diverters, I have added quite a few vintage leather tools for sale to my website this evening. There are some really nice ones in this set.
First off are two good plough gauges. One is a Brindley and is much like the good old Dixons. The other added tonight is a good brass-framed Blanchard – one of the revered makers of beautiful leather tools that work as well as they look.
I have added some great knives. There are two Gomphs that are very good, as well as a couple Osbornes with the Newark NJ marking. I also added an unmarked knife as well. I have had several of these unmarked knives and they are very good. Everyone who has bought one is happy. Two buyers of the unmarked knives have replied back that they were better than some expensive modern knives they have been using.
I have also listed three draw gauges – one with a 4 inch bar, another with a six inch bar, both with wooden slab handles. I have also listed an all metal draw gauge as an affordable tried and true user. These all have new blades and have been sharpened. They have all the gibs and are ready to use.
I have also added several overstitchers, edge bevellers, edge creasers, and strap end punches. To view these and other tools I currently have for sale, please follow this link to the leather tool section of my main website > Bruce Johnson Leather Tools .
