Re: Fleshing Help

Just work the scraper hard at the tip, and it usually camoes off somewhat easy. That is the hardest part of fleshing for sure.

Re: Fleshing Help

The Blue English fleshing system is the best thing since sliced bread in my opinion. I can flesh a coon clean faster than my partner can skin them.

Re: Fleshing Help

mb, watch this clip of Phil Brown.
His knife has a dull blade (inside bend) and a sharp blade (outward bend).
Dull side is used the most. But watch back, neck area, the sharp blade is used in a 'slice'n motion' until one reaches the lower back and dull blade can be use to push off.

*Please note...
On this video, most folks don't watch the knife work. After the first hundred Coon, there is no thought process flip'n from blade to blade, it's second nature. Watch the knife...
