Petal Lifting Tools for Leather
Petal lifting tools for leather carving. Made from high quality tool steel they are sharpened and polished to make petal lifting almost effortless. A rounded heel prevents it from leaving tracks on the leather.
The hardwood graver style handles feature a flat face which is aligned with the bottom face of the tool. This helps to provide maximum clearance when inserting the tip into the leather. This has an added benefit of keeping the tool from rolling around your bench.
I am often asked for suggestions as to which sizes to buy. If you were to have just one go with the number 2. If you do larger flowers then the #3 or #4 is perfect. For small flowers the #1 or #2 will work very well. The #0 is for very small delicate details.
