BAND NIPPERS, from collection

Image of BAND NIPPERS, from collection

These band nippers are from the working collection of Arthur Akhurst. I am privileged to be the current custodian, and I would be passing his passion for specialist equipment on to you. There are so many wonderful tools and I can't keep them all.

These band nippers are hard to come by here in Australia. They are for firming the leather around bands along the spine. For tool collectors or keen bookbinders, they are a treat. Choose from the two available:

WIDE, 32mm head, solid, unsprung
NARROW, 25mm head, sprung in the handle
