Kind of a specialty item, for punching holes in leather and textiles. This is the nearly the lowest price ($18.05 in 2014) according to the camels.

I realize Knipex are high quality tools. But I have the HF version [harborfreight.com] for occasional use (adding a hole to a belt, etc.) and it works fine for that. Obviously if I was doing regular leather work, I'd spring for the higher quality for only $12 more...

How occasionally do you find yourself using it? I don't do any sort of leather work or anything. This is one of the few Knipex deals I've posted that I didn't actually buy myself first, because I just can't fathom when I'd ever use it (and I have a pretty good imagination that justifies buying all sorts of tools).

Extremely infrequently. I'm not even sure what compelled me to buy it in the first place. I've added a few holes to some belts and that's about it. Previously I'd used a drill bit of similar size to existing holes.

Good to know, thanks. I think I'll continue not buying this then. Still a good deal I think for anyone that actually does leather work with some frequency.

Hmm, gasket holes, that's a use I can get behind. Your imagination is better than mine.

Yep, repped for a good tool deal. I just sadly have no use for one.

Thanks OP for posting! I also have a harbor freight one, but am going to jump on this deal. On thicker material the harbor freight one doesn't open wide enough to let it clear. I believe the Knipex one is made in Germany and I have always been impressed with the quality from Knipex products.

As I use them to make holes in my leather belts as I have either lost or gain wait from when each belt was bought (lol). So they fit better.

Despite reading through the comments looking for an excuse to buy, and finding none, I still purchased just because I like the brand. Good thing my toolbox capacity far exceeds my skills and needs!

Drill bits don't make for very clean holes in some materials..

Never know when you're going to need another hole in your belt.

Picked one up. Hopefully I lose some weight and need to punch a new hole in the ole belt.

Dang it, you've all convinced me. Just realized I have a project coming up where I'll need to make a bunch of holes for rivets. Might as well see if these speed up the process.
