Like hitting the lottery, I was surfing the net a few weeks back and found these!!! :D Here are a couple of beautiful pieces of musk ox horn from Greenland!!
Musk Ox horn is one of the most beautiful horn materials I have ever had the pleasure of using on a knife. This stuff is beautiful and polishes to a iridescent with a amber look that is hard to describe but its easy to see why this stuff is so sought after!!!

These 3 pieces are dry, and solid.. Ready to use.. This material is also one of the harder materials to work with.. Yet the finished results are worth the extra time and efforts necessary to make it a viable handle material.

These should make some BEAUTIFUL knife handles and furrell's etc.. :)

Will the red line in 4th pic(the one with the circle drawn around the little brown line) stay there for good? Is that usable? That'd just be such a cool little thing to have on a handle.

03-10-2012, 03:15 PM
I was wondering how that will look when you start sanding, working the wood. Hope it doesn't disappear.

Its hard to believe that something as beautiful as this horn can come from such a ugly looking beast!! Actually there quite cool looking..

Here are a few pictures of a Musk Ox and one of a knife I made using the horn!

03-13-2012, 01:18 PM
Stunning! Really beautiful!

My first post on this forum - hi there from Poland ;)

The handle is great!
The material itself too.
What would you compare it to? I mean the hardness of working in it.
Is it similar to wild water buffalo (asian buffalo) horn?

Love your work, Randy!

Thanks Dziab, Welcome to KKF!! Its awesome stuff and pictures cant really do it justice!

I would compare it to buffalo horn for how it sands and polished.

Here are a few quick pictures. Sry about the bad lighting.. Anyone interested shoot me a PM. :cool2: The horn tips are solid material and would make cool furels or end caps. etc. :biggrin:

The plan now is to cut these and try to get em posted on my web page this weekend. I will share a link and some images here on the forum once they are in the web store.

I have had many requests for Furruel pieces. and spacer/ butt cap pieces. so I will cut some. The rest will be scales. and maybe a couple of Wa blocks.

Thanks and God Bless.

Sry I didnt get them listed last night. Its been a long week and its only Tuesday..

Lisa is hurting and I am starting to worry.. We have a doctors apt. for mid week. She could use some prayers.. (Lisa is my wife. :) )

Anyways. Im gona try to get this listed later today. After I come in from the shop.

I know many of you have been waiting and I appreciate you hanging on. Just a quick update on this. I plan to get these in my web store today. Life has been a cluster around here this week. Im hopeful I will get back into the shop and stuff this weekend.

I have had a few requests for stuff, mainly furrel blocks. Due to the nature and natural shape of this material. paired with the cost. I made many blocks and left them oversize. This should allow for the end user to get the block or blocks they need with extra cut off pieces for spacers. and what not. I hope everyone who wanted some can get a piece or two. As I never know when of if I will be able to acquire more. :( Aside from ONE request its gona be on a first come first served basis.

Thanks for your patience. Carry on. :D

This horn is making me rethink the handles on my knives lol, amazing stuff. :thumbsup::goodpost::knife::knife::knife:

A muskox spacer adds a real nice touch to a handle IMO. If I had more knives that needed custom handles and didn't already have some of Randy's blue mammoth tooth I'd be all over one of these

HHH Knives

Yep. Even a slice of this amazing material adds alot to a handle. I am a fan of a larger part of the handle being horn. To get a better look at what makes this stuff so awesome!

Hmm, That sounds like a awesome combination. Blue mammoth tooth and musk ox horn. Yep. I think I like it!
