Very cool, quite interesting handle.

I didn't quite know what you meant shot dead center and did not shear until I got to the last pictures and was thinking OH! it was shot! haha.

 

Probably not all that common, so gives the handle a bit of an interesting tale.

Looks good Bob! That's an amazing piece of antler.

Cool RObert, very one-of-a-kind!

Let not the swords of good and free men be reforged into plowshares, but may they rest in a place of honor; ready, well oiled and God willing unused. For if the price of peace becomes licking the boots of tyrants, then "To Arms!" I say, and may the fortunes of war smile upon patriots

The pattern came out really well. I'd be happy to care one like it on the hunt. :)

Thanks for the comments. I'm sure that it's not for everyone but it certainly is a one of a kind and it actualy feels good in the hand, the balance is just behind the guard.

You shoot that boy twice? Was it a shed? Really interesting. as already said a real one of a kind.

You did the antler proud

 

Tom i picked the rack up at a flea market for a few dollars and did not even see the hole for a few months until i was looking for a handle. It had some skull plate attached to it so i guess the second shot was a little lower. Over the years i have seen a lot of shot off antlers but never a shot through.

How big is that hole?? Like what kind of gun did it come from? .30 cal maybe? It doesn't look too small. Still, that's a sweet knife.

Thanks for the comment, i would say it is close to a .30 cal the hole where the bullet went in is a little over 1/4".
