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.

CS Osborne #10 Cantle 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.

Horseshoe Brand Crispin style Leather Hammer

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.

This is a really nice set of Whitcher “A” lasting pliers. They are clena and don’t appear to have had much use. There is no play in the jaws. The anvil is nice and crisp with no dents or dings from hitting nails. The jaws mesh like they should and these are in great condition – price – $25.
