Looking for bone or horn rounds


Recommended Posts

I am looking for handle material, preferably bone, but horn will do.

 

I need a smooth round about 1" in diameter and 4-5" long.

 

I would buy or trade for a piece (I've got some good .125" x 2" copper bars).

 

Also open to any and all DIY ideas.

 

Thanks,

 

Don

Try a pet store. Nice clean bone for dog chews.

I said that.

So, just for the record: the fact that it does work still should not be taken as definitive proof that you are not crazy.

Thanks Geoff... that might be just what I'm looking for.

 

And Ken, thanks as well. I have used pet store bone for slabs, but at last glance they didn't have anything that would accommodate the dimensions I need.

Another possibility... bone rounds

And then there is this... giraffe bone rounds
