The purchase of a Japanese Black Rubber board is one of the wisest purchases you can make to ensure the life of your cutting and punching tools. Whether you are using drive punches, strap end punches, cutting blades or chisels, this rubber surface is a "must have". The protective rubber material absorbs the tool's impact through the leather, thus preventing the tool from hitting a harder surface and causing damage to the tool.The material and hardness of this board are suitable for the hole puncher, without having too much rebound when using it.
Compared with other black rubber boards on the market, this one has bumps and marks popping out during use, thereby avoiding transferring the marks to the leather.
It can extend the sharpness of punches and knives.

Over time, when the board start to wear out from the repeated strokes, you can achieve a smoother surface by using a hot iron and parchment baking paper. By putting the paper on the board and ironing it, will close the holes on the board and flatten the surface.
You can also use a metal roller. Although it won't close the punching hole, it's a quick and easy way to flatten the surface and continue to work on your project.
