Your Place for Vintage Leather Tools

When you are looking for proven leather tools to add to your workbench, I can help you find the appropriate tool. I feature vintage quality tool makers like Gomph, HF Osborne, Sauerbier, CS Osborne, and others. I also have some tools from modern makers as well at times. I scour the planet for leather tools, refurbish and restore them, and then list them here on my site for sale. I am also listing a limited amount of new tools that I believe in. I have new tools from Wayne Jueschke, Richard Brooks, and CS Osborne. 

I have been working with leather for over thirty years and have personal experience with many of these tools. 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.
