How do you professionally finish a leather U or V cut?

Finishing a leather U or V cut requires some skill and patience to achieve a professional look. Here are some steps that you can follow to finish a leather U or V cut:

  1. Clean the leather: Use a damp cloth to clean the leather surface and remove any dirt or debris.
  2. Trim the edges: Use a sharp pair of scissors or a leather knife to trim the edges of the U or V cut. Trim the edges as close to the cut line as possible but be careful not to cut into the main leather surface.
  3. Sand the edges: Use fine-grit sandpaper to smooth out the edges of the cut. Sand in a circular motion and be sure to sand to the edge of the cut.
  4. Burnish the edges: Rub the edges of the cut with a burnishing tool or a piece of slicker to smooth them further. Apply a small amount of water or gum tragacanth to the edge to help it burnish more easily.
  5. Apply edge finish: Finally, apply a leather edge finish to the edges of the cut. Use a brush to apply the finish evenly and allow it to dry completely.

By following these steps, you should be able to achieve a professional-looking finish for your leather U or V cut.
