You will need to use a draw knife I think.

Use a razor knife and keep going around it , eventually you'll get it. If you have a teenage son, you can put him to work on it, or hire some mexican day labor to help, they can zip that thing down to nothing in no time. Once you get through all the husk,and you've got a trimmed log, you can use a draw knife to remove the skin and shave it off. some guys use electric planers, but I have found the draw knife to work best. Good cardio workout too!

Loved the YouTube...never seen that kind of action before...you made it look simple, but I know that's not the case...looking forward to episode 3.
