The simplest way to remove hair from the hide when butchering hogs.
A great addition for any home butcher for easy hog hair removal. A hog
scraper removes hair from a hog after scalding. Simply hold the hog scraper
firmly with two hands and use plenty of pressure and scrape the hog from the
front towards the tail. The scraper should be angled on its furthest edge and
pulled towards the user during scraping. In most scenarios, you should start
with the head and the legs immediately after scalding. These will be the hardest
areas to remove hair and thus should be done as soon as scalding is complete
to make it easier. To smooth out any wrinkles, simply stretch the skin or move
the hog's legs to make scraping easier. If you have problems removing hair, it
usually means that the hog has not been sufficiently scalded. After the hog has
had hair removed, proceed to rinsing with warm or hot water. A hog scraper
can be easily re-sharpened multiple times by simply using a file or an emery wheel,
until there is a very rough edge.
