Uncut, one piece shell cordovan is pretty rare. Luckily I was able to get my hands on a piece of uncut Shinki Hikaku Natural Shell Cordovan. This will be turned into a few belts.

 

 

I had no idea it was that large.  When I think of the rump on a horse, I didn't know it would be that big.  I have never seen that before.   How did you get it?

Hi, just want to share my 2nd shell cordovan wallet from J Michael Ashland OR.  This time I ordered green shell cordovan with black chromexcel horsehide for interior.  I took the pictures with my phone, so the green colour is a little hard to see as it's really dark green, and the shell is from Clayton.

If you look at the picture more attentively, you can clearly see the two "pieces " shell , they just didn't cut it out. It is not a real one piece shell IMHO

I think this one is just similar to this one, may be even larger:



I took this picture at a Japanese shoe shop in Tokyo, the staff told me that it was not a "one piece shell" since the shell area is not "connected." Actually, I think all Horween shell look like that before they are cut. You can see it in every video that show the shell production posted by Horween.

That is correct. It technically isn't one "shell" but it is still uncut shell cordovan. So it is two separate pieces with middle portion which feels very close to the regular shell - though a bit more rough.

 

I don't know that any of the "one piece" shell cordovan items (like belts) that are sold are actually from only one single shell and not two connected like this. I could be entirely incorrect though.

I forgot Skip or John told me that about one out of 100 sheets of cordovan will have a very small part (about few inches) connected together.

thanks.

it was described as "thin horsehide made for us special from Horween. The tannage is very strong, thin, and has great aging characteristics and is inspired by English bridle leather used in equestrian saddles and western-wear"
