The brands we use
The worker who wants to do his job well, begins by equipping himself with good products. This will save him time and guarantee superior durability for his products.
Tokonole is a water-based alternative to gum tragacanth, and it's popular with leatherworkers around the world. It's what we use for all of his edge work - including the 'edges of our wallets'. You must apply the tokonole with a stiff fabric like the canvas. If you want it, you could cut the tokonole with just a little water, in order to dilute it. For our part, we use the original material directly on our leathers. It is important that the pressure you exert during polishing must be delicate so as not to damage your product.
Tokonole helps reduce heat generated during burnishing, helping to prevent discoloration and darkening of edges. Combined with very fine sandpaper, cloth, and the right technique, you'll be able to polish the edges to a high shine.
In addition to edge burnishing, tokonole can also be used to "glue" the flesh side of most leathers using a wooden smoother or the glass smoothing plates we sell in our shop.
