I keep a hammer in my studio just for this purpose. Have been using it for years and it works great. Just a plain ole regular hammer.

I have one of those mallets in my leather tooling area. Hummmn, and I wondered why tools and supplies migrated.

LOL - was thinking the exact thing. That's where I got my 45mm rotary blade - sold as carpet cutters - and cheap - and yes they work really great!

This "Huh? response was meant for greenfairy .... about the snipping of the three stitches at the corners of connecting pieces. It really does work for me...
