Harness Needles vs. Glovers Needles
- Harness needles have a rounded tip. More often used on leather where holes are pre-made with pricking irons or punches.
- Glovers needles have a sharpened tip. More often used with canvas or fabric where pre-made holes are not needed. Can be used on leather but will take more force to pierce through the leather.
