Russett - Horsebutt Strips


Additional information


Color Range

Cut Type



Hide Type



Tanned using a slow process to create a firm, dense leather that is ideal for wet molding and stamping. Also good for sheaths, holsters, bags straps, razor strops, welts and belts (when long enough).

The veg tanned strips come from the heavier section of the hide and have a very tight grain structure. These “Russet” strips are tanned alongside Horween’s Shell Cordovan during the first 45 days of their production. The veg extracts used to make these strips provide them with a natural russet color that will deepen to a beautiful chestnut tone when oiled. This deeper color tone can also be achieved after longer periods of use and exposure to light.

Horsebutt Strips have a tapered shape that will vary from piece to piece.

Craft 2X – Strips will be irregularly shaped, have scars, stains, brands and/or other various defects.
