Open Seamed

This response submitted by Rick Carter on 3/11/01. ( WASCO )

The cape is cut all the way down the back. Lots of people think a hide wont properly tan if you can't lay it out flat for salting. I say hogwash! A short Y incision is all you need. Why would anybody want to waste time sewing when it could be avoided so easily? The upcoming issue of "Breakthrough Magazine" has more on this subject.
