On the topic of deer hair, what separates the men from the boys is the trimming technique. Any thoughts there? I have my scissor tip method but it take a lot of time and effort. I use a fiskars squeeze scissor with the precision tip parallel to the shanke facing the rear to taper. I works well for diver deer heads. The rotary vise really helps.

I've heard about curving and snapping razor blades to speed this up, anyone try it?
