Leathercraft Article and Video by Bruce Cheaney
I like and use Craftool leather stamping tools and here are the ones you can get to get started.
Craftool A888 Background Tool and Matting Tool
Craftool B802 Coarse Beveler
Craftool B803 Coarse Beveler
Craftool C426 Camouflage Tool
Craftool P212 Pear Shader
Craftool V715 Shell Tool
Craftool V400 Veiner
This list of leather stamps is a great starter set and this is what I recommend.
You can purchase these from the Tandy Leather in Ft Worth Texas on online at their website. It would be good for you to request a Tandy Leather Factory Buyers Guide this will be very helpful for you to find leathercraft tools, leather, hardware and patterns.
I use a Barry King swivel knife with a 1/2″ barrel and 1/4″ hollow ground blade and you can get one from Barry King Tools in Sheridan WY.
The mauls I use are made by Maul Master and I purchased mine from the Weaver Leather Company in Mt. Hope, Ohio.
