    Hello Jim, this is the only skin I have found. If you use the sides with the smaller denticles it will look ok.
    Soak it in water, cut it so you have good amount of excess for width and length as once you bind the grip the skin shortens when it forms in the grooves.
    I usually give it an extra 1 1/2" in width and length. Once dry and hard you can cut it with a dremel tool or grind the excess off.
    No need to remove it as it forms snugly. If there is a loose spot just use some wood glue but don't remove the skin from the grip.
    Once done there should be no skin on the top of the grip as it wont allow the backstrap to fit properly.
    The skin can rip easily when wet, if it does it can usually be pushed back together with little difference in the look.
    I dye the skin with black shoe dye.

    Hello Jim, I have found the skin on ebay from a couple sellers. You need the white skins that are dried but not tanned. The black tanned ones are just like leather and will not form to the grip.
    A small skin that will do at least 3 swords is around $30.
