Ukchoo, fish skin dressing tool. It is a boat-shaped piece of wood, tall in the middle and receding towards the sides, with a quadrangle cutout in the middle where pieces of fish skin are put to be beaten with mauls. Several fish skins, pre-soaked and dried, were placed at once into the rectangular bed. To make the skin soft, it was beaten with a special hammer.
