Concho Punches

Concho punches are used to make leather "conchos" or "rosettes". They need to be used with a fairly heavy maul and well supported stamping surface for best results.

Buttonhole and Oval Punches

Buttonhole punches cut a round hole and connected slit/Pippin punches have a elongated teardrop hole and connected slit. They are used for buttons or stud fasteners. Button hole punches may be a pliers type tool or a drive punch. Oval punches are something I rarely get. They cut an elongated hole and good for strap holes to let the buckle tongue sit a little more flush.

Round Hole Punches

*Single Tube Punches*

Single tube plier type punches now have their own dedicated page. Please search for it in the index of Leather tools for sale and locate it on the drop down menu above. Thank you!

Round Drive Punches

Round Drive Punches are used to punch round holes in leather. These punches are all sharp and ready to use. They are a mix of makers - Osborne, Bemis&Call, VBT, KeenKutter, etc. unless otherwise noted in the descriptions.

Round Arch Punches

Arch style round punches are generally larger size round hole punches. Most are going to be Osborne, but there are a few other makers represented at times - Adco, ASF&T, Wm Johnson, Krauter.
