Purser – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Leather Side Piece Veg Tan Split Medium Weight 12 X 24 Inches 2 Square Feet But I had no idea it would be so thin. For reference, it’s just about twice as thick as a paperback’s cover. This surprised me because it’s described as:“Great for knife sheaths, pet toys, key fobs, straps, mocassins, chaps, Native American crafts, strops for knife sharpening, rugged looking vests, belt and purse linings, shop aprons, fringes and trims, garment applications; inlays, repairs, pillow backings, patches, woodburnings, scout crafts” As far as “knife sheaths, key fobs, mocassins, chaps and strops for knife sharpening” goes I’ve NEVER seen leather this thin used for any of those purposes. I suppose you could make a “rugged looking vests” if you were making them for Ken Dolls. No doubt this would butch ol’ Ken right up. And the rest are pretty much fabric applications and I could see how it would be useful there as it’s about the thickness of canvas. Still, it is a piece of leather with a very uniform and pleasing (to my eye) finish. I’ll do something with it but it’s not suitable for the purpose it was purchased for. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 57 of 64 people found the following review helpful Issue with the leather but good seller, June 13, 2012 By Brandon – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Leather Side Piece Veg Tan Split Medium Weight 12 X 24 Inches 2 Square Feet Okay I purchased these two supposed medium weight leather for some knife sheaths and other ideas but I do not think I will be doing that after receiving the leather today. I honestly in good consciousness can not use this stuff for a knife sheath. It is supposed to be around 4-6oz weight leather (Medium weight leather) not 1-3oz weight like it feels. EDIT:I sat down and measured this leather just now, there is not a 2mm section on this leather, of either 2 sq ft section I bought. I measure 1mm all the way around on one section and not even a legit 1mm measuring on the other leather section. As for shipping and all that, top notch, bang up job on getting it to me fast but would I order from them again, probably not. I normally buy my leather in person so this was a 70/30 chance, 30 being getting a good selection of ordering online. I will NOT recommend this seller to anyone. You did not advertise the correct measurements for the leather, therefore I got the crappy end of the deal. I will see how my items turn out but this was a bust of an order. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (5) Reply 17 of 19 people found the following review helpful So far, so good, February 3, 2013 By John – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Leather Side Piece Veg Tan Split Medium Weight 12 X 24 Inches 2 Square Feet Product came as described. I’m using it for a DIY strop and so far it has worked out great. This is not tooling leather so don’t expect a smooth full grain piece of hide. This is “split” leather so slightly rough on both sides and only about 1mm or so thick. I see a few bad reviews of the “split” pieces by people who don’t know what they need for their purposes and are therefore inaccurate. Research in leather cuts is imperative to buy the right thing! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
