    Yes and No. It depends on what you consider effectively. There are several glues that work well on leather. Tandy's Leatherweld, Masters Cement, Barges even Elmers white Glue All for woodworking is good. Most holsters are glued prior to stitching. What do you consider effective? The joints made by the above glues can, with force, be pulled apart. Generally, if it was a good joint, pulling leather from the weaker surface and not separating through the glue line.

    Leather contact cement (not rubber) is the best option and works well with the flesh side of the leather. If you use smooth side then rough up the surface for best results.

    Barge Cement
    It's for sale on Ebay these days.
    The only problem you'll ever have with it is getting the leather pieces back apart again if you make a "whoops!"
