Laser Cut Leather

I know leather can be laser cut, I've been asked to cut leather a good dozen times but the truth is that I don't have any leather and I don't know anything about leather which leaves me in a dubious position that I wouldn't know what to buy and how much to pay for it. So I finally found a compromise, somebody sent me some leather that they wanted cutting, I get the practice and the experience and I return the finished item no charge. And here are the results, I'm pleased and surprised how thick I could cut through, it's fairly stinky stuff though.
