Skin Stretcher
muskox horn
 

A skin stretcher is essential for preparing a hide after it has been scraped. The tool is repeatedly pushed across a dried skin to break down its rigid fibres and make it softer and more pliable for sewing. The dull blade of the tool allows it to be used forcefully without piercing the skin.
