Gouges

Adjustable V-gouge

When you're working with leather, you sometimes need to create a fold or crease as part of a pattern. You might need to fold over a strap to create a loop, fold pattern pieces to fit together along seam lines, create folds to add volume to a bag or pocket, etc. Folding leather is not as simple as folding paper or cloth because leather is thicker and harder to crease, but with the right tools and techniques, it's not that hard.
