Good Morning, I purchased one of the pirarucu remnant packs. But, the thing is, I don’t know how to use it. I thought I would make a small card wallet like the one pictured in the ad. But, after looking at the actual leather in person, and touching it, I’m afraid to use it. Will it fall apart when cut? Just some pointers on working with this leather would be really awesome. Thanks for your help.

That stuff is incredibly tough!  It will not fall apart when cut….  We’ve made wallets and lots of small accessories from it.

The only thing that you might want to do is cover the edge, either with lacing or you can do a bound edge.  But regardless, it won’t fall apart on you.  The remnants are from a boot company, and they’re still making boots out of it.
