Tanning Tools: Make Your Own Dry Scraper   

In this two day class you will make a dry scraper for tanning large game - moose, elk, bison, and deer - from scratch.  Starting with a sheet of high tech tool steel, each participant will cut out a blade, heat treat it to optimum hardness in a temperature controlled furnace, sharpen the blade to a razor edge, and craft a handle from premium hardwood.  If time permits, participants will also have the option of assembling a softening tool for a small extra materials fee of $30, payable to the instructor.

  • Ear and eye protection are available to borrow but you may prefer your own
  • Wear long sleeve non-flammable (cotton / wool) shirts and pants

Optional Tools

  • Sharpening stone if you have one (not required, just for practice)
