Hello and good day. I am offering these here on a first come first serve basis. Because these are irregular in shape. I measure on the smallest sides. so these are larger then stated. This assures you that the pieces are a minimum of the sizes listed. All of these horns are 3+ years dry and ready to use.
WORKING WITH Musk Ox horn..
When the horn gets to you. Its best to acclimate it to your climate. if there is a bow or the piece/s are not true. Put them on the oven on 300 for 5 minutes and then clamp them firmly between 2 flat objects. This will set them flat in the event the bow.
When I work with this horn and any horn for that matter. I seal the material with thin CA glue. then sand flat again. I may do this 3 to 5 times throughout the time I am drying the material. and then again many times as I am shaping and working it into a handle. What this does is fills the pores and helps to stabilize the material. Finally after I have everything set and shaped and final sanded. I always apply 3 to 6 coats of hardwax with again adds a layer of protection and helps with stability. Musk ox can be a challenge to work with, yet the rewards and the look of the finished material is well worth the extra efforts! I will be happy to answer any questions you may have about working with it. Shoot me a email or private message.
