Dragon Skin

Dragon Skin is used to efficiently split and soften the tips of the horse hair bristles on Maru Bake. Traditionally, shark skin is used, but we prefer to let the sharks swim in peace.

The closest thing to shark skin we have found is this silicon carbide sanding sheet. It comes attached to a plywood base and is ready to use.

The length allows full extension of the arm while rubbing, which is comfortable and helps make the job go faster.

(FYI: The perforated metal sheet we used to use was discontinued by the manufacturer. After testing several products, we found silicon carbide sanding sheets split the hairs on the Maru Bake equally well and seem to work faster than the old Dragon Skin.)

Instructions are included.
