Since 1861, Hermann Oak has been tanning top-grain leather right here in Missouri. This St. Louis-based 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. We are proud to be one of the largest distributors of Hermann Oak leather and to offer their classic tooling leather. If you’ve never tooled on this leather, you’ll be spoiled rotten after you do! The leather is firm and cuts smoothly, which adds some ease and finesse to stamping and decorative cuts. It’s also a favorite of knife sheath and holster makers, as it wets and molds easily and consistently. To top it all off, the leather accepts dye and oil beautifully, making it a supreme choice for any crafter. Learn more about Hermann Oak and see additional buying options here.
