Every tool is set in a hand-turned hardwood handle with a slight taper, measuring 13.5cm x 3cm (at its thickest) for a comfortable grip. Beilder Made designs are best used on leather surfaces, with the face of each tool slightly domed to ensure a crisp impression. As each tool is individually made, please allow for a small degree of variation.

In addition to a beautiful hand-crafted finishing tool, you will also receive two admissions to any museum tour or event, a total $100 value.

An ABM staff member will reach out to you to select your tool after purchasing your membership.
