Glazing Iron

The George Barnsley Glazing Iron is a very traditional shoemaking tool


Once warmed on a tabletop burner they are used after applying wax to create a gloss on the surface of the leather, particularly soles and heels


Our Glazing Irons are available in 5 styles to suit the shoemaker, these are standard, cut down light, cut down heavy, long beak light and long beak heavy


The Irons are finished with a traditional square shoemakers beech handle
