I arrived at home one day after work to find antlers piled high in front of the garage door – 3 elk, 2 moose, 2 white tailed deer, 1 mule deer. There was no note or any clue who dropped these antlers off. I narrowed the suspects down to one person who has a big heart and thinks he has a tall sense of humor. I made this knife for him as a thank you. The blade comes from Lee Valley Tools [Mora]. The white tailed deer antler handle has a brass lined lanyard hole . The finger guard and butt cap are carved from a recycled iron wood carving [found at a yard sale]. The leather for the sheath is also recycled, and comes a from local a salvage company.
Handle – White tailed deer antler
Guards – Iron Wood
Brass tubing and Leather Strap
Sheath – Leather, Snaps
Blade – Frost Kife Blade – ‘Mora of Sweden’ [ Hi-Carbon]
Length overall 11 inchs
Thank You for your interest.
