Great, easy to order and great value for money! The leather is amazing to work with but takes some practice as it scratches super easy while crafting. But I can’t wait to see the patina it develops! Just be aware there are some imperfections in the cracks of the wax layer and stretch marks, all natural but not a perfect hide. Still great!

Fascinating and amazing leather to work, very smooth with that white wax, but the shoulders are unfortunately small

The quality and workability of this leather is amazing. Edging, skiving, burnishing all feel like you're cheating somehow because it goes so smoothly. I've gotten several cool effects with the rub-off using different methods, so there's a lot of versatility to it.
