    Never had KT smell up my hands........ but it sure stinks when in the bottle don't know what to tell you on that one Cole I don't handle any skin that has been introduced to any type of acid with my bare hands untill it's been nutralized.

    Not that I should have and I certainly don't recommend it but it washes off easy.............

    Becky P One must believe the glass is half full.

    Same here. I have splashed it on my a bit and it burned a little but nothing serious but I'm not going to go around sticking my hands in it to find out any different.

    Whatever my tannery uses (when I use a tannery) burns my arms. They send them wrong side out/wet so when I stick my hand inside to turn them it goes up my arm too. Looks like nuetralizing would stop it but I guess not. My arms will burn and itch until I get them washed good.

    It may be something you are sensitive to.......but I would call your tannery and ask them about it. That sounds weird.

    Easy, by this time next year that will be a school/tannery


    Not outrageous though, I've had certain tans do that to me as well. Nothing intolerable, but enough to make you rinse your arms when done.

    May be .........but it gets the job done.............and it is a workshop which is better than a school.............You know all hands on type............. ;D

    So says the man with the 12X20 cinder block shack that he calls a school Roll Eyes

    Easy, by this time next year that will be a school/tannery

    I was Fleshing/shaveing 5 capes a day out of that little building and was not in any lack of space............By this time next year, I could move to a warehouse and start a school(15 students at a time) and maybe even a tannery if that was My desire.........but it's not...........
