Antler Crown Section Knife Handle Blank
Large curved crown section of pre-cut and sanded Mule deer antler. Great for knife handle projects that involve short stone bladed tangs, half or 3/4 tang metal blades, naturally shed and weathered. These are natural blanks that do have an overall curve in the handle and intact crown. Sold individually.
Naturally shed and weathered, these antler knife handle blanks are perfect for primitive weaponry crafts when a natural look of age is desired. These blanks are of the most desired portion of antler for knife makers, also known as the solid crown, or 'burr' section of antler closest to the skull of the deer. Great for carving, since the burr tends to be solid bone material with little to no pith (soft marrow) at the base.
Rough sanded, cut to a shape similar to examples shown in the product pictures. Size, shape, and color will vary from handle to handle as these are all natural. Some handles show more weathering patina, micro-cracks, and age than others.
Approx 5-6 inches long from top end of handle to tip of burr. Width at blade side of handle will be a 1 inch minimum, these are considered full size. Priced per individual handle.
