What characterizes good dotting irons?
A good punch should be light and fit well in the hand. In addition, the iron must be robust, resistant and sharp. If a tool ever becomes dull, it must be resharpened to prevent patterns from becoming blurred. Ripped edges should be avoided, because clean cuts and edges make the best patterns.
