Strike tool selection for oblong hole leather punch
When striking the rectangular hole punch, we recommend using a rawhide, wood, or poly headed heavy mallet, hammer, or sledgehammer to secure the end of the metal bag punch. We do not approve of using a metal hammer on your metal slot punch. Overtime using metal on metal can cause burrs on the ends of leather tools.
