It's a seam ripper. You use it to pick up and cut stitches in a seam that you want to "unsew". To use it properly, poke the longer end under the stitch, then push it through so the U part cuts it. Repeat every few stitches, then use either your fingers or the tool to pull out the threads. To use it the quick & dirty way, pull apart the layers of ...

That is a fishing/survival tool. To use most of the tools, you snap the needed tool (such as a hook) off the slab. The individual tools do not reattach. As you noticed, most of the tools are for fishing, but some are more general tools, such as a saw. Whether or not its appropriate for your 14 year old nephew, depends largely on his maturity and your best ...

I know these as Tin Snips, or Tinner(')s Snips, and are identifiable as such because of the symmetry of the handles and blades, the wide aperture between the blades, and that the handles are longer than the blades. The difference between snips & shears? Snips are shears that are used for cutting metal. So a snip is a type of shear. And a shear? ...

By sliding the arms along the guides you are able adjust the view of the scene you are trying to capture. Helps the artist to learn how to control the content, design and layout of an image. Here's an example from the Derwent company. [ Here's an example of ...

Awls are typically used for punching holes into objects, awls come in different styles. This one in particular, if you look at the back end, looks very durable, and able to be hammered on the back without issues. So it is able to push through thick leather easily.

Based on the appearance of the tool (the thick shaft and the guard around it), the person in the video is drawing on the leather using heat, rather than 'cold' etching, carving, or engraving the leather. This is known as pyrography. The tool used here is called a 'solid-point burner'. This tool is attached to a power source, often (and preferably) has ...

"Feed-off-the-arm sewing machines – A feed off the arm sewing machine’s design is unusual in that its arm bridges a u-shaped bed.

"Miniature" is a reference to the length of the tuft of bristles from end of the ferrule to the tip of the brush. There is no standard to how measurements for artist's brushes are shown. The measurement is usually a number stamped on the side of the brush handle. A company standardize their own number system but that doesn't necessarily mean it's the same ...

Painting knives don't seem to have much in the way of naming standards for blades. Most are just numbered in a given series. Some manufacturers do manage to group styles together but the names don't carry between. From what I can gather the very generic name for that is a offset trowel/spatula knife. Offset due to the crocked handle. The tips that are ...

It’s a ‘Brown + Sharpe toolmakers knife-edge #530’ In the video he was probably just referring to the second ruler he showed with the bevelled edge.

It looks like a multi tool, the very point could be used as a awl as previously said, the part with the indentations to aply all sorts of compounds to the edge end last but not least the end portion resambles a burnishing tool. So its probably a "jack of all trades" tool as commonly found on those kits, its probably not the best for each feature ...

To me the tip looks just like the tool I use to apply edge coat. The little indentations hold the edge coat as you apply it. I’m assuming the pointed end spins? If so that’s what you have, a tool to apply an edge coat. An edge coat is applied as a thick coating to finish any edge on your project. Before that takes place you would burnish the edge with a ...

It looks like a camel saddle. Numerous designs exist, for different camels & intended use (long riding trip, short ceremonial riding trip, pack animal, etc) and different regions. Some are made only for use as ottomans in houses, though! I remember the fashion for these was big in the 1970s. (I will never forget the one my piano teacher had near her ...

It's a Leathercraft 5-in-one Multi Tool. https://www.etsy.com/sg-en/listing/810136661/leathercraft-5-in-1-multi-tool-3ea It's supposed to pull apart and... do various clever things, but quite frankly I see nothing to recommend it over a traditional awl etc. which has a proper handle.

I do not believe there can be an authoritative answer for this question as every trade will use whatever tools work best for them and rename it - no matter what the manufacturer calls it. There is very little innovation among simple hand tools like these other than the materials and the marketing. There are obvious differences which do suggest names. For ...

The two images in the original question are both images of pointed pen nibs. Within "pointed pens" there are variations - the top image is an oblique nib while the bottom image is an oblique pen - both are great for right handed calligraphers (and personally, my favorite type of pen for calligraphy!) - they are more comfortable to grip when doing ...

It depends on whether you are a beginner who expects to continue and is starting to build up a collection of tools, or whether you are a beginner who wants to make a single item and does not expect to do more in leather for several (or many) years to come. If that last, making one item only, you do not need much. After you have chosen your leather you can ...
