Hermann Oak B Grade
Since 1881, Hermann Oak has been tanning top-grain leather right here in Missouri. St. Louis-based, the company prides itself on its slow and careful tanning process. A process that produces the finest top-grain stamping and tooling leather in the world. The Hermann Oak name has become synonymous with high quality! This is what Hermann Oak calls their B Grade, this leather will have the small amounts of surface defects/blemishes. Of course, it still has all the wonderful tooling and molding properties that you would expect from legendary Hermann Oak leather.
Fun fact: Hermann Oak supervisors grade all their leathers FOUR separate times! Their standards are regularly coordinated in group meetings, and the GRADING IS BASED SOLELY ON SURFACE IMPERFECTIONS LIKE SCARS AND BRANDS. The greatest emphasis is placed on the bend area (60%) followed by the shoulder area (25%) and the belly area (15%).
