Shoes and Craft

A shoemaker's blog about shoemaking

Sometimes I spend some time and money on ebay to find new (actually quite old) tools – you know I am addicted, and it’s not a joke. So these nice pieces came from Austria. On the left there are spme pegging awl mount, the right ones are for stitching, in different sizes. I am very sure that these beautiful pieces have been made 50-100 years ago, most probably in Germany. That time they made millions from these stuff per year! Can you imagine how many shoemaker existed and made nice, comfortable (and durable) pegged shoes and boots? 

These old guys go to work after this long rest. 🙂
