Several weeks after collecting the wood and beginning the crafting process, Ewar finishes work on an ekichielong made from elim. He uncovers a piece of goat hide he buried the previous day and cuts strips out of it with a knife. He scores them to make them supple and then plaits them together into a handle, which he attaches to the foot of the ekichielong. Once the handle is attached and the ekichielong is finished, he coats it in animal oil to give it a rich sheen.
