I want to try burning someone's name onto the leather pouch. I'm worried that it will weaken the pouch. Any thoughts? Maybe if that is the case I could put the name on a small piece of leather for the release, but for that size I may only be able to do initials. 🤔

It willl largely depend on the type of leather used. Some stuff is fairly thin and can hold up to abuse unless it's damaged in some way. And then the parties over. Thicker leather shouldn't be a huge problem so long as you aren't using a blowtorch to put the name in.

I'm using scrap leather from hobby lobby craft store, it seems a tad thinner than I'd like it ~1.5mm

What are you using to burn in the name?  In general I wouldn't have much concern with it weakening the leather.  If you have a small piece of scrap leather, you can burn a line on it, and then do some stress tests to see if it breaks on the burn line.

I think a bigger problem than weakening the leather is the leather curling up and so (if it's a pouch) not holding ammo so well. Also it can look pretty ugly.

Most of the leather that comes from craft stores is chrome tanned upholstery-grade leather.  Chrome tanned leather is softer than veg-tanned tooling leather, but I don't think you'll weaken it too much. 

I've used a cheap Super Carver laser engraver on that type of leather before.  If you get the settings right, it can look pretty good, but you definitely have to be careful not to overheat the leather or it will start to make wrinkles around where you burn it.  I've also had trouble with the smoke soaking into the leather and leaving marks.

eight strand is the same as four strand...but...
instead of under one over one you do under two over two it is precisly the same thing ...there are other combos that you can use but this is the easiest
