    I have purchased a lot of this leather and have never been disappointed with it. Fast shipping and excellent customer service.

    I have ordered this letter before and been mostly happy with it. However this hide has a large hole in the shoulder area and about a 9 by 2 in scrape in the lower middle part of the Hide about 10 in up from the belly. This reminds me more of a craft grade hide.

    I am very happy with the quality and size of the side that you sent, as well as another side I received several weeks ago. I spoke with one of the guys in the store before placing my order online and he assured me he would pick out what I needed. I am sorry I didn’t get his name, but I appreciate his good service. Thank you! The shipping was fast and it is nice knowing when it will be delivered. Hope the quality is always that good. I like buying leather from you and knowing you will send high quality leather for a fair price.
