COWHIDE DOUBLE SHOULDERS
These excellent, deep, dark,
rich burgundy chrome tanned double shoulders are from USA cattle and run
3.5 to 4 oz in thickness (1.4 to 1.6 mm).
Burgundy Double Shoulders
run about 13-14 sq ft of surface area. This is a smooth surfaced
leather, and it has been compressed a bit to help it
stand up to uses like desk
tops, boot shafts, stand-up bags, etc. Firm temper. Glossy
surface, with excellent coloring. These are Tannery Sorting Culls, so there will be a small blemish on the hide somewhere.
Burgundy Smooth Double Shoulders, Seconds:
$70 each, 48-state USA shipping included.
CROCODILE EMBOSSED BLACK COWHIDE DOUBLE SHOULDERS
Incredibly Well Made!!
These chrome-tanned double
shoulders are basically the front end of a full cowhide, running about
10 sq ft of surface area each.
These have been embossed
with a very detailed crocodile/alligator pattern that's very convincing.
Thickness on these embossed
shoulders is 4.5 to 5 oz (1.8 to 2.0 mm), also known as H thickness.
Lots of fine detail in the
pattern. Regular temper. Black Croc Shoulders, $80 each, 48-state
USA shipping included.
