Depending on the hardness and thickness of the leather, it can actually be quite delicate. For example, when cutting a thin piece of leather, one has to be very careful not to stretch it out.
Precision is also very important, especially when the product is meant to be sold.
Finally, lots of strength is actually needed, especially during the process of punching holes into the leather.
