Rounded Shank Needle Leather
The Round Shank Leather Needle is suitable for many high-speed industrial machines as well as for certain older household sewing machines. The Round Shank Needle is not suitable for the majority of modern household sewing machines.

With its rounded shank, this needle is different to other household needles. As the name suggests, this needle’s shank is not flat like most other household machine needles, but round instead. What’s more, the rounded shank has a significantly smaller diameter in comparison.

The Round Shank Leather Needle has a chrome coating, a standard feature in most industrial needles. As a result, it suffers less wear and has a particularly long service life. The DBxF2 Leather Needle has a cutting point, the reverse twist point “LR“. This easily cuts through leather, tough synthetic leather and similar materials. The resulting seam consists of slightly sloping stitches, creating a visually decorative effect. The Leather Needle is not suitable for textiles as it cuts through woven and knitted threads upon insertion, thereby causing holes.

The DBxF2 LEATHER Round Shank Leather Needle is only suitable for industrial sewing machines or older household sewing machines whose operating instruction specify the use of the DBxF2, 287 WH, 1738, DBx1, SY 2270, 16x251 or 16x231 needle system.
