We are so excited to now offer FREE SPLITTING on all 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 28 inches (750 mm) wide, with a very precise +/-0.1mm tolerance. 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 sides 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 0.2mm (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.
Sending in your own leather
Include your email address and a note with your leather that details how you want your leather split. Anything over 28" wide we will need to trim down to fit the splitter. If necessary, please indicate how you want this done. Ex: split in half, trim 6" off one side, etc.
We will measure the leather and email you an invoice for splitting costs and return shipping.
Please email us for the address of where to send your leather.
We can split leather you purchase from our shop or from your own
