Moving along with Part 4 of making axe strops from scratch for the cordwood challenge. As some will remember, two of the hides for the project were stolen by a bear or bears. The remaining hide is now ready to flesh and begin the deliming process. In this video I finish scraping over the skin to remove as much hair as possible and then re-flesh it. Next it is rinsed and scraped alternately to remove all of the lime and return the skin to it's normal flaccid state before tanning. Also below is my original video on unhairing skins for tanning.
