Leather Leg Pad

large leather leg pad for flintknapping on the knee



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.
