    Very nice knife. Looks to be about 8.5" overall. Should last several lifetimes. What is the price?

    thanks, the pics suck but the knife turned out really good. The bad thing working with antler is it stinks when you sand it.

    Nice knife Dan. That s some nice antler. I hate working with antler because of the burning hair smell. It is a lot of work

    Link sent. And yes antler stinks to high heaven. Cutting it also is a pain. Finding the right piece for the right knife is hard to do.
