Norwegian to English translations [PRO] Materials (Plastics, Ceramics, etc.) / bladesmithing / sheath making
Norwegian term or phrase:bråtörke
Talking about shaping damp leather around a last to form the sheath. "... sometimes the last seems loose. However, this is not a problem, because the leather crimps quite a lot, particularly if it ..... bråtörkes ... a little." Since brå means abrupt, and törke is to dry, am I correct in thinking this means to "quick-dry"? And if so, what is the correct term for this?
