Re: Sewing Leather

Or you could make awl yourself, get round piece of wood (so it feel comfortable in hand) hammer a nail in it (not too deep) and then file down the nails head...does the trick for me.
Identity store is really great, reliable and great customer service:)

Re: flail or ball and chain

2 weeks ago I made my own flail... was quite easy. 1m black chain from B&Q, brush stick, got 2 nails, some wood dye, and found a metal plate roughly 0,75inch wide 8 inch long. https://picasaweb.google.com/100735176339641554486/FlialMk2 of course if I could afford would swap brush stick for ash.....

These should be fine for clothing though.

I've got set from this guy for clothes, and another for my armour...they are really strong, i reckon the wax is giving the extra strength.
