Leather Leg Pad
Thick cow leather pad to protect your clothes and leg while flintknapping. Each leather pad size is the equivalent of a minimum 12 x 12 square inches but most are often larger. We cut them rectangular when possible and most end up being around 8 x 13 to better drape over a leg. Expect some natural edges since these pads are cut from from thicker outer pieces of vegetable tanned cow leather straight from the tannery. Leather thickness varies around 7-9 ounce. Most knappers find two of these stacked to be plenty of support for percussion and pressure flaking. Sold individually.
Tip: We find layering a leather pad on top of our modern rubber leg pad is very puncture resistant and particularly comfortable for long knapping sessions.
