So I have some giraffe bone that isn't stabilized and I was wondering if it absolutely needs to be stabilized before I use it. In my little bit of research I came across some conflicting opinions.

Also is it worth spending the money to stabilize it?

I have used it quite a bit unstabilised with no concerns. Had 4 full leg bones and got 4 handle lengths per leg bone giving 6 full handles per leg so 24 knives with giraffe bone that have gone to England, Africa, US, NZ, AU and Canada with no reports of any issues after twp years in use.

I've got a bone that still had the foot, skin and everything attached, had to skin 8 of them.  
A friend used the other 7 for handles, he just boils the bone till no more fat comes out and uses it unstabilized , no issues.

Thank you guys for your answers. I'm glad stabilizing is optional.

A second on recommending a respirator while working with bone.  Another note, grinding bone absolutely reeks and the order will hang around for a few days.
