Default TOOLS AND LEATHER

HI, I would like to have a go at making some leather goods, belts, pouches etc and need to buy the appropriate tools and leather. Can you please offer advice on where to buy good quality tools and leather.

Regards Tim

it's all much of a muchness really, one thing you should try is figure out what you want, then go on Amazon and do a search for that item, you'll probably find it cheaper that way.

( the stuff from China is well made and good value )
