Hide Scraper

Published by at 12:16 pm under Animal Materials

When I go down home soon I’ll have some hides to tan. I don’t have a proper flesher for the task, so I decided I had to make one. Since my cellar is stacked with reindeer/caribou antler it was made to resemble one I saw and tested in Lofotr this summer. Such a small scraper will take longer time to use. However, on stubborn hides you will not have a choice, but to use a scraper with a smaller surface.

The antler tine next to the scraper is carved with the motif of an eagle catching a lizard. It’s to be made into a necklace for my youngest daughter.

The scraper is used in a chopping motion. The pointed sides are excellent for getting under membrane sheets.

    Howdy this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering
    if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I
    wanted to get advice from someone with experience.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
