Maybe you need an easy and inexpensive decoration piece next to your fireplace or in the “Man Cave”. The Leather Guy branding irons have a loop that the end of each handle where you can hang them or add a piece of leather lace to the loop to create the perfect accent to any room.
Each branding iron is handcrafted American made steel that measures 10” in length including the handle. The brand will vary in height and width depending on the shape of the brand you choose.
To get a feel for best dwell time and temperature required for your project it is best practice to first test on scraps. For best results using a small propane torch will quickly and evenly heat the brand, it is also important to make sure to apply pressure evenly to ensure a uniform impression. If you don’t have a torch the iron will need to be heated on a stove or grill for about 10 minutes, or more depending on the material you're branding. If heating is done over an open flame heating time will vary depending on how close the brand is held over the flames, the material you're branding, how dark you would like the brand to be, and its head size.
Exercise caution when heating irons as they will become very hot and will require the use of thick gloves when handling. When cooling the iron make sure to place it horizontally to not damage the brand.
