    My newest adventure

    Elk Antler Handle that I was trying to decide on what to use for a base (antler MUST be sealed)
    Been sitting on the bench for a month or so
    I was out there yesterday working on a razor and I saw an Elk leg bone that I had processed years ago
    I cleaned off the shop gunk and the idea was hatched
    After the Epoxy dried I cut and fit the bone to the Antler
    Sanding and polishing brought out an almost Ivory like finish

    My friend Dan had sent me a few Synthetic knots to mess with, and I saved the best for this handle
    24mm SilkSmoke knot





    Didn't notice until after, the Bone Base has a deep 3D effect that looks like Clouds in the light
    I tried to catch the effect...


    Yeah I like this one

    I like it!
    I have one in elk you made several years ago. My wife bought it for me for Christmas.
    Always a smile on my face when it comes around in the rotation.

    I use Marine Epoxy, to glue on the base and to glue in the knots, that seals the core of the antler so it doesn't rot out :)
