To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I use this product for what it was intended, leather-work. Thus far, I've stitched a cover fro an arrow quiver I custom made. The tools and waxed thread were a great help. I was able to achieve my goal in a few hours. Some muscle is required using these tools, don't kid yourself, hand made things cost money for a reason! These tools can help you do it without electricity. I recommend this tool kit.
As a beginner leatherworker I didn't want to spend a lot on tools. This set is great, a huge selection of tools and threads and all at a very economical price. Haven't actually used them yet but seems to have more than enough for my early needs. Highly recommend this set.
used this kit to repair my ice hockey goalie pads (beginner with no prior sewing experience). Unfortunately one of the needles did eventually bend working with goalie pads. I don't have prior experience sewing or doing this type of repair, so could be do to user error! In the end, was able to complete the repairs and satisfied with the result.
All items were included as described, but the wooden handles are of very poor quality and one of them arrived already cracked. Many of the metal parts of the goods arrived already rusted, and the swabs for dying the leather were dirty. At least some of the awls are usable, although I doubt they will last very long. The stitch groover was the best quality of everything, which I'm happy about at least because that was the most important part to me.
The quality is about what I expected. It's a beginner set and will allow you to learn the basics. The tools are a bit small in your hand and this will impact your ability to use them easily and safely. However, the product appears to have been opened previously because it isn't a full 31 pieces...I only have 28.
