Drive Punch

4 reviews

A drive punch is a tool for punching holes in leather and fabric. It is struck with a mallet on top of a cutting board to cut precisely-sized holes into your work. These drive punches are high-quality steel, and they automatically empty themselves of punched material through the side barrel so there’s never any clogging.

  • 3/32" (size #1, 2.3 mm) - to punch holes in fabric

  • 1/8" (size #2, 3.1 mm) - to punch holes in leather

  • 3/16" (size #6, 4.7 mm) - to punch holes for Chicago Screws

Klum tools

I took the Portsmith bag making class in Puyallup in March. These tools were used in the class and worked very well.
Denim needle had no issue going through the thick layers, the small black punch tool has a nice heft and went right through, the Boning tool works well for fold and crease at a good price point. The waxed canvas is amazing! The rivet remover tool is very hefty and smart but I have not needed it yet.

High Quality!

All of the tools I’ve purchased from Klum House have been incredibly well-made & have made the process of bagmaking so enjoyable & smooth. This Drive Punch gets used almost daily in my work & stays sharp & functional.

great little tool

This punch works really great and it's easy to use. I was very frustrated with my rotary punch, it didn't work at all most of the time. The frustration level dropped to zero the first time I tried this little punch. Should have ordered it weeks sooner.
