Leather hole punch for me, but I used to just sharpen copper tubing or rifle shells to get a free punch.

Tried a drill it tended to twist the leather, a simple leather hole punch works better.

I use a leather punch, not the one you squeeze like in e-shot's post, but the kind you hit with a hammer or put in a lever press. I also drill sheaths, but only when it's too thick for a punch or awl.

Hollow Punch - I tried today, 5mm is good for Chinese tubes. it is far better than belt puncher (thanks Dan)


For flat band I think ID card puncher - but the below one's hole seems bit large don't know whether other sizes available.

I use biopsy punches- 8mm for flat band,3.5mm for 1745/ 3/16" tube and 5mm for centering holes. The ID badge punch is a good idea!
