Craftool Company was the oldest and best known leather stamping tool manufacturer in the USA. Their tools were hand ground and hand finished for decades by trained craftsmen. The older tools made in the 1950's and early 60's were marked with only a number. The factories where these were once made no longer exists and thus these older Craftools with no letter prefix have become highly collectable, not just because they are no longer made, but because they work. In fact, there is probably more leatherwork being done today with these old tools than any others brand available.
This 6-Seed Bar Grounder stamp is of that vintage. It is tool number 101 and it is a genuine Craftool Co. stamp. This Bar Grounder stamp is a great example of why many serious leather stampers prefer these vintage tools. The crispness and precision of this hand ground tool is beautiful as you can see from the detail left in the impression. These old tools do not come available very often, so don't miss your chance to add a great tool to your collection. It still has many miles left in it.
Please note, we may have multiple copies of this item. There will be differences in each one. Those differences could include the placement of the number or name, condition of the chrome plating, wear patterns from the previous owner and other things that make each tool unique. The important part, the stamp impression, will be as close to the example as possible, allowing for the differences found in hand ground tools.
