Format: Paperback
Not just the pretty pictures and names of the tools you might encounter, but also how to keep them sharp and working well, and even a little on how to make some of your own tools.

Includes information on how to make the tool work for you, with things like trimming a handle to fit your hand for best control during use.

Another excellent resource book from Stohlman.

23 of 23 people found the following review helpful By New England Yankee on September 18, 2008
Format: Paperback
This is a slim paperback booklet that looks a bit like an old catalog in that tools are illustrated (drawings) rather than photographed. The emphasis is on basic hand tools and while the contents are a bit dated, leather tools haven't changed much over the years either. Brief practical advice is given for each tool as well as describing its basic use. What you won't find in this book is coverage of non-American leatherworking tools (Euro tools being very different in many cases), any machinery (e.g., clickers, stitchers, etc.), or, with a few exceptions, alternative tools for the same basic function. You also won't find newer tools that are on the market. There are a lot of innovative string cutters available these days, as just one example. The book could use a thorough refresh. Still, it has good coverage, the advice is 100% usable, and it's inexpensive! Well worth having.

I ordered this after reading about it at the cascity leatherworkers forum and as I knew the quality of everything else Al Stohlman has written. I have had for years the "The Art of Hand Sewing Leather" which is indispensable for everybody wanting to learn to make and repair horsegear and gunleather. This Tools book has also the same kind of very high quality drawings which are so much easier to reader as compared to the usual cheaper photographs seen on many how to do books. Stohlman really sets the standard for all the how-to-do books in the world with his no-nonsense straight to business style.I highly recommend these two books for everyone interested in preserving a piece of almost forgotten world, not for nostalgic but for a very useful reason.

Another great book from the legend Al Stohlman, Written like all his others (basically has hand written pictures then printed and only 97 pages) but filled with great information and ACTUAL EXPERIENCE in how to use the tools and care for them. The hand drawn images are clear to understand the task at hand and the directions are easy to read. If you work with leather, whether new to the craft or experienced Al Stohlmans books are great to have around to learn from, filled with great tips and information.

Al Stohlman anything is good. Seriously, this book is among my most used. It tells you not only what every tool is but how to sharpen, maintain, and store them.

This is a very good book to inform the beginner in leather crafting. It gives detailed instructions for the Care and How to use all the different tools. Instruction in both word and illustrations. You can take these instructions with confidence since this is another great book by AL stohlman Master craftman.
