Tonight I am adding a few more leather tools for sale. Thanks for those who have bought listed tools, and to the ones who have contacted me and bought tools I hadn’t listed yet also. Today I am adding a a hammer and a couple sets of pliers.
This is a duplicate set of pliers for me. These are the #10 pattern cantle pliers from CS Osborne. When you get these pliers new, the corners and edges are sharp. They will leave marks on your damp leather. These came from a young guy who didn’t get the message from the old timers about grinding the points off the corners and rounding over the edges. He bought a set from another maker and these came with some other tools he traded to me. I rounded these up and used them off and on, but don’t need two sets. They are priced at $35.
It is no secret that Jeremiah Watt at Horse Shoe Brand sells some pretty tools. This is another tool that is a duplicate for me. Jeremiah’s Crispin style hammer has some nice features besides the engraved pattern. The face is flat so it doesn’t leave dimples like the ones with a dome face will do. I like it for tapoffs too. The tail is broad and smooth. I use the tail for pressing and working wrinkles down on swell covers on saddles. Handy hammer to have on hand. Priced at $40.
