I been wanting to have a try at mounting an antler handle to a knife blade for some time now. The ‘WOOD’ part of this project is the ironwood bolster with a leather washer spacer. The ironwood is recycled from a poorly done duck carving found in a garage sale. The hole for the landyard is lined with a brass tube and a brass pin locks the antler handle onto the hidden tang. The weathered mule deer antler was donated by a local farmer. Out in his field he found his bison chewing on the ends of the tines. The knife will be a gift for him.
Handle – Mule Deer
Bolster – Ironwood [ Poly satin finish]
Leather Washer , Brass Rod , Brass Tube , Leather Landyard
Blade From Lee Valley
Stand – Drift Wood Base [ unfinished] with a yound White Tailed Deer Shed
Thank You for your interest.
