Cobbling punches made their debut at Ebon Gate 2016. The primary feature of cobbling punches is the adding of zests. The punches can also add the cobbler's hallmark to the bottom of the shoes, which is a small design imprinted on the bottom of the shoes, such as a smiley face. They can also add the cobbler's and/or owner's name. When it comes to adding hallmarks and/or names, the following options exist:

(1) Display no crafting mark or engraving

(2) Display an engraving of the owner's name and cobbler's name

(3) Display the cobbler's full name and title

(4) Display the cobbler's name

(5) Display the cobbler's crafting mark and the owner's name

(6) Display the cobbler's crafting mark

Example of option 5: Imprinted on the sole, you notice a soaring drake overlaying a jagged mountain peak. Inside, the name 'Eruheran' is engraved in elegant script.

There currently 5 types of punches.

Only 1 punch can be used on a pair of footwear (you cannot stack multiple punches on the same pair of shoes).

Genuine Punch

This punch requires 2 unlocks to get all of the available zests. The 1st unlock gives you only some of the zests.

Analyze

You analyze your steel punch and sense that the item is largely free from merchant alteration restrictions, but the creator has stated that "The item has restrictions on changing the noun."

The creator has also provided the following information:

This punch is a master cobbler's hallmark punch.  You can cycle through the options via TURN and apply the hallmark to a cobbled shoe via PUSH.

This item may be altered with a long or show description, however, the noun must remain PUNCH.  You may request a merchant add a custom hallmark to the punch.  The design must make sense to be imprinted on to the bottom of a shoe (e.g., "a smiley face").  No embellishments or materials may be added to the hallmark.

In addition to adding your hallmark, this steel punch will apply "Genuine Punch" zests, which will add some kick to your cobbled creations and allow the wearer to TAP, PULL, POKE, PUSH, STARE, DANCE, RUB, or TURN the footwear.
