Leather Slot Hole Punch

Leather slot hole punches are metal tools with a cutting edge used to create narrow, oblong holes in leather material. There is usually an opening in the punch near the cutting end to insert a thin metal wire and push to release the cut leather material. The other end is usually made of solid steel, providing an area to be struck with a hammer, mallet, or maul.

Slot hole punches are helpful when making holes to run straps through, such as in bag or case-making work.
