Berg 501 lasting Pliers


A pair of highly collectable 501 lasting pliers made by legendary Swedish tool maker E.A Berg

They are in fair condition but have clearly been used by a shoemaker. The teeth are worn and a little pitted and there is a tiny amount of  play in the hinge. The crosshatch pattern on the hammering foot is in good condition. Please look carefully at the photos to get a proper idea of the condition

They have a great balance in the hand and are still eminently usable

Stamped “E.A Berg Eskiltuna Sweden” and “501” on the head. Please note that the words have been partially worn and are difficult to read but this is a genuine Berg pair of pliers

They measure 25.5cm and weigh 500g.

If you collect vintage shoemaking tools, these are definitely for you.
