The German firm NWS (Nöthen Werkzeuge Solingen) makes tools that are widely recognized in Europe for exceptional quality, innovation and performance.
Operating with a compound hinge for increased leverage, this punch requires surprisingly little effort to cut a well-defined round hole in thick leather or other tough materials. The six hardened steel cutters (Rc43-47) range from 2mm to 4.5mm in 0.5mm increments. Waste material is deposited inside the conical cutters for easy disposal.
A small window in the side of the revolving head clearly displays the cutter size. 10" long overall, with plated steel handles covered with polymer sleeves for a comfortable grip. Maximum clearance between the cutters and the anvil is 12mm (about 1/2").
Not recommended for use on sheet metal.
