This used Hourglass Rope Basket Weave stamp was made by RBS (Roth, Barnes, Stohlman). It is tool number 514. The tool measures 9/16" in length and 9/32" in width. This Basketweave Stamp is a great example of why many serious leather stampers prefer these vintage tools. There is some chrome chipped off and rust on this stamp, including on the tool face. The crispness and precision of these tools is beautiful and they are tools you would be proud to own because they perform the way they were intended. These old tools do not come available very often, so don't miss your chance to add a great stamp to your collection. It is ready to perform and still has many miles left in it.
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 prior to the early 1960'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 collectible, 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 other brand available. There were many other tool makers creating similar tools during this era and companies like McMillen, Baron, Basic, Hackbarth and RBS were just a few of them.
