    Drum Tanned Kangaroo: Jesses, Anklets & Braiding

    We are experienced falconers and this is the best kangaroo leather we have ever seen. Every bit of these larger hides is usable and the thickness varies from 1.2 to 1.4 mm. It is dense, resists ripping, and will wear well on even the toughest hawks. These hides were selected and processed specifically for Western Sporting. We import these hides directly from Australia and our stock is custom collected and sometimes limited. The cost is a few dollars more for this quality of leather, but it's worth it and a half or whole skin will last a falconer a very long time.

    This leather is for Larger Hawks (18 to 52 ounces).
    Half Skin (approx 3.88 sq ft) @ $119.95
    Full Skin (approx 7.75 sq ft) @ $229.95

    Kangaroo leather is known to be the strongest leather, per thickness, in the world. The grain on kangaroo is rather mixed-up so it does not have quite the stretch one way or the other that is present in most leathers. We have sourced the best skins we could locate-in fact they were custom tanned to our exact specifications. These skins are drum-tanned (drum-stuffed) so they are dense and supple-perfect for anklets and jesses.

    Condition your leather with our own formulated NurtureSeal Leather Conditioner (Item FE5050) as needed.

    Kangaroo leather is commonly used by whip makers and braiders for a variety of braided items. Whip makers who make bullwhips and custom braiders find this leather very dense and able to hold up for the long run. It is about 3.5 ounces in thickness. Note: We do not accept returns on leather that has been cut.
