Leather Splitting Service
We are excited to offer FREE SPLITTING on most of our leathers. We hope this service will provide you the added flexibility to choose leather at just the right thickness for your needs.
Our band knife splitter can split up to 30 inches (750 mm) wide, +/- 0.2mm tolerance on full hides and +/- 0.1mm on panels. Most all our 1/2 hides fit the splitter and don't require cutting. If you need a full hide split we will cut it into 2 pieces that fit the splitter. We also can split customer provided leather, we will have you ship it to us with provided requirements and we can split and ship it back to you.
Benefits of splitting:
- Splitting to thinner size gives you right thickness for your application
- Reduces weight from your project
- Remove variation in tannery split hides to an even thickness
- Ability to split to 0.4mm (We recommend not going under 0.5mm in most cases)
- Removing hair on flesh sides uses less glue
- Removing hair on flesh also makes for cleaner adhesion with stiffeners and liners
Just note at checkout your splitting needs and we will confirm with you. Also note by splitting the hides we don't offer returns or exchanges. If you want to see a picture of each hide before this we can arrange that.
We can split leather you purchase from our shop or from your own. Customers are responsible for insurance and return shipping.
