Need Help ID'ing And Pricing These Tools

Recommended Posts

I picked up these tools along with some leathercraft stuff I bought. I don't see a need for them in leatherwork but in checking around, there seems to be some interest in people buying them.

 

I am trying to find out exactly what they are and/or what they are worth. I'm told they are garver.

 

The 2 long ones are marked 52 and 54 with the word Victory on the longer one. France is stamped on the handles of some.

 

The short one with the end view is a square shaft with a flat, blunt end.

 

The thin one in the pic with the heavy, black one is a square shaft, beveled along the diagonal.

 

The silver metal punch is a hand punch from 1922.

 

Any help ID'ing and pricing these is appreciated. I don't want to rip anyone off, or get ripped either.

 

Please reply privately to tom@legacyleathercraft.com

 

Thanks

 

Tom

Welcome Tom those are indeed engraving gravers, and a punch of some sort is following, can't really make out what the shape is however. Price and value is "whatever someone will pay you for them" and they aren't all that rare.

 

On aside, how about stopping by the Who's Who section and telling us a bit about yourself, do you carve or were you just looking for info on your tools?

Thanks for the info.

 

No, I don't carve. LC over on the leatherworkers forum told me to come over here and ask about the tool's value.

 

Thanks for that.

 

I think carving take san artistic eye and I ust don't have it. I have trouble following a line on leather, much less gouging out wood pieces <g>

 

Later.

 

Tom
