BRAND NEW TOOL OVERVIEW-SCROLL DOWN

THE RUSSELL BEADER, PUSH BEVELER AND DOUBLE BEVELER

Our special thanks goes out to saddle maker and friend, Rusty May of Colorado for bringing this tool to our attention.

The original tool is owned by Rusty May, made by famed tool maker from many years ago, F.K.Russell of Texas. The original tool is a real treat to hold onto and use, with the very ergonomic handle design, the shank curved in just the right places making it easy to see the tool head during use. We were very impressed and felt it time to add our version of that tool into the Horse Shoe Brand Tool line. You will notice first off that we have stepped away from a traditional wood handle and for several reasons. We wanted to offer a handle like the Russell for its feel, control and grip, but without the expense of a wood handle of that complexity. Our handle offers all the original design details, minus the wood shrinkage and cracking should you drop the tool. This handle is made to the exact shape of the Russell, but ours is made of a high density polymer construction, rendering years of trouble free service. The tool heads, of which there are 3 patterns offered, are not made of stainless so you may experience rust if you lay it down on wet leather etc. We chose this particular metal type, because of its ability to slide thru damp leather extremely well, with very little micro-etch effect from the damp leather. All in all, we think its one of the nicest tools we have introduced in several years. This new tool represents a melding of old tool technology and modern metallurgy, we are pleased to introduce it to our valued customers. The Russell tool will be offered in 3 different head types- not interchangeable. BEADER tool head - Double Beveler head - Push Beveler head. Please note that these tools are not designed to be interchangeable, handles are not removeable, they are each used as a separate tool on your bench.

RUSSELL TOOL - BEADER

The beader tool, is the one tool that a leather worker will probably use several times each day. Using this tool on wet leather will leave you with a beautiful burnished partially round formed double line that is permanent. it is a fantastic design element when used alone on smooth leather, or use the decorative bead line as an addition to frame up a carved or stamped area. For best results, use the tool on smooth grained,cased leather. Hold onto the ergonomically shaped handle, place the thumb of the right hand over the flat top of the handle, with a firm grip press down on the leather and follow the scribed line on your leather. To end the line at a sharp corner, carefully rock the tool forward into the corner, being carefull to stay within your scribe lines.

RUSSELL PUSH BEVELER

The Push Beveler, is the second tool that a leather worker will use several times each day. Using this tool on cased leather will leave you with a beautiful burnished bevel when you push it along a swivel knife cut which can be a border or a portion of a cut floral design. This tool will bevel your swivel knife cuts out to the right side of the cut, with a smooth glossy burnish if the leather is properly cased. Please note that there are and will be corners within any design that are simply too tight to get around with a tool of this type. For best results, use the tool on smooth grained,cased leather. Hold onto the ergonomically shaped handle, place the thumb of the right hand over the top of the handle, and with a firm grip press down on the leather and follow the swivel knife cut on your leather. To end the line at a sharp corner, carefully rock the tool forward into the corner, being carefull to stay within your cut lines.
