The first carving is a full elk antler and the second is my newest knife with deer antler handle and maple burl base.

Beautiful workmanship. That knife handle is very very nice as well as the blade.

You’ve got to be kidding me. I can’t carve that good on a big piece of wood. Awesome job, thanks for showing it.

Both pieces are very nice—actually, tremendous! I always enjoy seeing your art work. Thanks for sharing.

Those are really impressive. What do you carve them with?
