My wife knew that I was looking for buckskin to use for handle covering on hiking sticks. Well, she surprised me last night. She was on Facebook and found five (5) sides of buck tanned cowhide. These are light buckskin colored with a soft finish.

They varied from 22 to 45 sq. ft. The best part is they cost a total of $30. One or two of these would make all the handles and moccasins I'll ever want.

Bargain. We live 2 miles from a tannery and buying scrap pieces of horse leather we couldn't beat that price. I need to move to the US, if only for the cheap basswood!

That was a great gift. You can make some nice look grips with that. .
