  3. Michael Langham (verified owner)

    This scrap piece was PERFECT for my need.

    I’m using it for cutting out 6 6″ rounds to stack together in making a leather stropping wheel to mound on my grinder.

    I have another project for taking naps in a chair, which will be bringing me back to ML for materials.

    Thanks again for a great result in my first purchase from Montana Leather.

    Cheers from Southwest Ohio,

  11. Lieana Colbert (verified owner)

    I am new to leather crafting and wanted to test out the difference in the Hermann Oak from the leather I purchased on Amazon. This piece was the best by far! I got a nice size piece to practice on for a very reasonable price. It arrived on time as promised. I will be getting more from here as I get better in my leather crafting.

  41. Michael B. (verified owner)

    The leather itself was wonderful. The packaging is where there was an issue. The leather was just rolled in a cardboard box and when it was exposed to the rain the leather soaked up the water and I lost about a square foot of the leather to being stained a different color by the water. Some simple plastic wrap could prevent this.

  42. Pat@MontanaLeatherCompany (store manager)

    Hey Michael! I’m sorry to hear about the leather getting soaked in the rain. We try to limit as much waste as possible, but plastic may be something that is necessary like you say.

  43. Kevin J (verified owner)

    Wouldn’t do this again, pieces were horrible, really small piece had a scribed line in it, good for nothing, others weren’t much better for the price.

  44. Pat@MontanaLeatherCompany (store manager)

    Hey Kevin, I’m sorry to hear the leather wasn’t to your liking. With your description there, I’d recommend trying one of our cut pieces instead. Scrap leather will more often have those imperfections that you describe, whereas our cut pieces will not.

    I wanted to see what Hermann Oak was like- it’s nice but my “scrap was worthless- more of it that I couldn’t use than could. Very disappointing!

  57. Lorne Noland (verified owner)

  58. Bruce S. (verified owner)

    I ordered a quantity of 2 and received this great single piece. The piece is all one weight, which is perfect so I don’t have to worry about mixing weights.

  64. Scott (verified owner)

    It’s great thick &Toughleather for making tool belt attachment backing. The scraps Are perfect with a big enough area to (maybe?) get a couple of 2 inch wide belts.
    When I had trouble paying for it Jim? created a purchase order that I could log in and pay. And was patient with me when I didn’t write get how it worked, DOUH!

  65. Pat@MontanaLeatherCompany (store manager)

    Hello! I’m sorry the leather wasn’t to your liking. With scrap, in can be a little tricky getting the exact weight and cleanliness you might want for a project, but if those are necessary qualities I definitely recommend upgrading to a cut piece, which we do offer.

  66. Pat@MontanaLeatherCompany (store manager)

    Hey Rob, sorry the leather didn’t meet your expectations. Scrap leather is definitely only scrap leather, and is intended for small jobs or repair work. If cleanliness is more of a priority, I recommend trying a dedicated cut piece of Hermann Oak instead.

  67. Scott S. (verified owner)

    Good sized scrap and a great price for HO.
