I have posted before on our "pour-scald and then antique hog scraper" expedition.
It worked "decently".

I am going to follow a similar path tomorrow and butcher another American Guinea Hog (small, 85lbs or so...).

My question is "how sharp should a hog scraper be?"
My scrapers are easily from the early 1900's if not older and thus the edges are not the sharpest.

I'm see benefits to a somewhat dull edlge and benefits to a sharp egge, but I don't want to start tearing skin.

Any experience and suggestion?
