I have pickled and tanned to date about 15 Arctic fox, 3 Arctic wolfs, 1 Martin, 2 Wolverines, 1 seal and a few Caribou hide for leather. All pickled using Monotan. The results are very good, you end up with a creamy white yellowish skin which after tanning and breaking is very soft and workable. This product performs as well as any I have used so far. I am by far no expert and just learning but I will continue using this product.

How did the seal turn out? I tanned a couple a few years ago an ever after tanning they both smelled of fish still. The amount of oil in the leather was just crazy.
