Default removing skin from pork belly. (help)

So i've been getting my pork belly for bacon with the skin on and i'm not very good at removing the skin without hacking the belly all up. any brethren out there have any tips or tricks to get the skin off without messing up the belly or removing much fat? i've been looking for videos and pictures online and cant find much. is there a certain type of knife that works best. maybe a certain method?

i havent had any home cured bacon in about 2 or 3 weeks and im going through withdrawals

edit: i should have mentioned i like to cure my bellies with the skin off rather than curing with the skin on.
