Post Burnisher
I know we've got a few leather workers here so due to being let down a bit I have a spare burnisher which I thought I'd offer here first before sticking it in the Etsy store. It's made from an antler tip with a red fibre spacer and a horn cap with some hand peened copper trim. The tip end is polished good and smooth for burnishing and it all sits in the hand very comfortably.

If anyone is interested it will be £35 plus whatever packing and whatever postage you wish. I'll give a definite price on the posting before finalising the deal once I know how you'd like it sent.

Just in case anyone is feeling a bit undecided, we've listed this up on the Etsy store as well now :)

:D

You use it to burnish the edged of leather for sheaths and belts, that kind of thing. You hold it with the Horn cap in the palm of your hand and then rub the leather vigorously with the side of the antler that's been polished smooth. It slightly compressed the edge of the leather giving better wear resistance and also pushes all of the stray fibres from cutting the leather back into the leather again and so neatens up and polishes the edge of the leather. I've also been selling a slightly different version with a harder bone cap to wood carvers for doing the same sort of job.
