Leather feels nice, just a lot smaller than described. For the amount I received, and the price I paid, it is not worth it

Amazing leather to work with. Takes burnishing very nicely, has a not too aggressive pebble texture, and feels soft to the touch, but has enough structure and body to not be floppy.
