As with all cutting tools, these hole punches require care to maintain their edge if they are to give reliable results. Please ensure that the tool blade is not struck or is stored in contact with any hard surface. Tools should be kept clean and oiled with a suitable mineral oil when not in use to prevent oxidisation or corrosion. Use a soft headed hammer when punching through leather. Only use the tool to punch through leather or softer materials.
The blade of this tool should be sharpened to maintain its cutting edge from time to time. This can be done by evenly running the blade in a rolling motion across a suitable, very fine grit, oil-lubricated, when stone, oil stone or sand paper (no more than 1000 grit). Care should be taken to sharpen evenly and not to over sharpen the tool as this may cause uneven or excessive wear. Once the desired sharpness is achieved, the blade should be stropped on a smooth leather strop for best results.
Keep out of the reach of children.
