Sharp Knife

I use an old knife, and a steel file. get her sharp, then shave,
get her sharp, then shave. Pig skin is pretty tough, stretch the hide over
a 2x4, it will make it easier. If you have flesher, use it, but a knife
is my method of "madness". I am currently working on a chemical to "dip"
the skin into to soften the shield, i'm close, but not there yet.
Best thing to say is, shield is a bugger, charge well
for your time, and dont rush.
