There's an 8" and a 12" from USA at right money but I'm sure that someone, maybe on here, was using one of those fairly deep wallpaper scrapers. I imagine they would have had to put a bit of an edge on it but seems like an inexpensive option. PS? Still got something hanging up in my workshop. Jok.

Well I've used a desert spoon with great effect for fleshing mink. Not my idea, but that of a very wise man who goes by the name of Glenn Waters.

Now I don't know if it works as well on other pelts, and probably a bit small for fox etc.
