Do you need to add a few extra holes to a belt, or dog collar? Do you like using leather in crafts or scrapbooking? If you answered yes, a leather hole punch is a great, rugged tool to have.
It is important to note that there are many more uses than just what I mentioned above.
HINT: To keep the blades sharp, fold a sheet of aluminum foil so it is 4 sheets thick and punch about 20 holes in it with each sized punch. Repeat if necessary.
Below I review the four top models and what makes them the best.
Skilled Crafter Leather Hole Punch Review
A nice feature of this model is an extra large strike plate that makes the punches more stable. 6 punch sizes are included on the adjustable head ranging from 2mm to 4.5mm holes.
A nice touch, is with this model you get 2 additional strike plates, a marking guide to use on your leather, a ruler, also a nifty tool that cleans out the punch holes, and cutting tubes.
Last but not least you get a carrying case for the accessories and a two year extended warranty.
EvZ Leather Belt Hole Punch Review
This reviewed model utilizes a strong metal body that will last for a long time. Which is important if you plan on using your punch a lot!
A small concern but it is worth noting that the head only rotates in one direction. And before using make sure that it is locked in place.
Also because the punch works easier than you might expect it is important to not squeeze too hard, and use a piece of sacrifical cloth like denim to protect the strike plate.
Pro-Master Leather Hole Punch Review
That is generally not a big deal if you are just looking to add a few holes to a belt, or dog collar.
A nice addition, that the other reviewed models do not include is an eyelet setting pliers, and 100 eyelets/grommets. This extra bonus is great for craft and sewing projects.
Two extra punch plates and a 3 year warranty are also included with this model.
SE 7924LP Heavy-Duty Review
This nine-inch long model has 6 hole sizes that you can punch. The adjustable head adjusts into place with a satisfying click.
I do not recommend this model if you plan to use it on extra thick leather.
You do not get extra punch plates or accessories with this model, just a good solid leather hole punch.
