BURNISH & BEVELING EDGES
Once we have cut the premium leather that will be used to create your item, it is vitally important that its edges are finished to protect and seal the piece. To do this, we bevel the edges to give the leather a smooth, rounded edge. We then hand-burnish by moistening the edges with water and laurel-leaf soap, then using a rounded burnishing wheel to fuse the leather fibers together with friction and heat. The edges are then finished with wax to provide a final protection against the elements.
