I picked up 2 squirrel pelts on sunday and would like to know whats the proper way to cure them? I was thinking about trying to make a soft knife shealth for a fixe blade buck. Also whats the best way to "shave" the hairs from the pelts? Anybody have a clue outside of saddle leather what would be the best animal hide to use for make belts and knife shealth ? I was going to start with somthing small and free or I might scarpe the whole idea and just buy a leather belt/pouch kit and cut & sew my own pattern.
