Ratings & Reviews
Very nice, but doesn't burnish
Got this for wallet interiors, for the weight and feel of the leather. It's a nice matte color, and feels very smooth and luxurious without feeling plastic. However, it doesn't burnish worth a flip (like the description and customer service rep claim), whether you use water or gum trag. Also doesn't bevel well at all, so it makes trying to burnish it even worse. You'll need to dye or edge kote this, since the cut edges are grey inside and not black all the way through.
