Was thinking about purchasing an M-Edge Kindle cover and like the smooth genuine leather cover but a friend stated that she had one and it got scratched up too easily. Was wondering if this was a problem with other owners. Could use some input. Thank you.
Mine has no scratches. I do have a platform cover, which folds back and I pretty often have it flipped open, but still, the leather seems to be holding up well, so far. Someone with an M Edge for a K1 might have more time with theirs.
I have the bright blue (sapphire?) cover - and so far, no scratches. I toss it in my laptop bag and/or purse whenever it leaves the house with me. So far, I am pleased with how it still retains its shine and smooth texture.
I dealt with this aggravation on a major scale while shopping for leather furniture.
What I learned:
All leather can scratch, most fairly easily. Harder leathers do tend to scratch less than soft ones. Most Kindle covers appear to be made from softer leathers, and therefore I suspect they'll all be prone to a certain amount of damage. Some dyes do offer more protection than others, but it varies so much between tanneries & hides, there's no real way to be sure in advance what your leather will do. This is why some of us buy a bag to protect our covers, LOL!
