    This is the cleanest and most consistent leather I’ve ever made a belt from. I use the 10-12 oz skirting then I tape the very smooth back and it is quite smooth. I then stamp a full basket weave arrowhead pattern with no discernable stretch and have no need to put a liner on it to give it a stiff belt feel hence the 10-12 oz thickness. On carving I cheat sometimes and use a small rose stamp (keeps it below grade) and carve it using the fine detail swivel blade and it takes the smallest details and holds them. To say it cuts like a charm is no exaggeration and it splits in my small hand splitter almost as easily as oiled and waxed leather does. Hermann Oak is good, make no mistake, but Wickett & Craig is better. Ever notice you never see W&C in “Craftsman” grade, I wonder why? I really do wonder.

    I decided to buy the Wickett and Craig after having bad experience with the Economy Double Shoulders being of very bad quality. I gave 3 stars as the piece I received have as good amount of creases/scratches and the back has a lot of fuzz. Maybe I got unlucky and received a bad piece I’m not sure. I’ll be looking at other websites for better quality leather.
