    Musk Ox Horn

    Musk Ox anyone? I have a few pieces of horn I would be willing and able to cut if anyone would like to secure some of this amazing material!! Shoot me a message with size and specs you would like and I will send over a estimate. Or if you want a Whole boss section. I could be persuaded..

    Heres a great photo that shows one of the amazing beasts! The Boss section is the area close to the scull. and who would of thought something this ugly could or would have the most beautiful horn material on the planet?

    and a example of what this stuff looks like finished out!! Polishes like glass. Has a translucent amazing depth. and is prized by many for its unique and beautiful look!

    Hey guys. Lots of people have asked for pricing and stuff. Thanks for your interest,.

    I will post some pieces on the web page later tonight. Mainly scales. The blocks are harder to make and the yield is much lower. so the prices of them tend to scare most of the people I have given quotes to away. That said. I did cut a few small blocks the size for a ferrule or butt cap, or could me many spacers. etc. and they will be listed on the site as well. I will come back here with a link once there up.

    Thanks guys
    Randy

    What do you think we are - reasonable people? Since when do high prices discourage us?

    Gorgeous stuff Randy. I've been wanting to try and make something with musk ox horn for a while. Just bought one of your blocks, even without a project in mind. Thanks for making this available.

    Hey everyone. Sorry but I am currently switching my Web Host and server to a BIGGER company! That means better page load times. and larger pictures. But for a few hours up to 2 days the site will be down.

    Sorry about this and hope to be able to tell ya all soon its fixed!

    Blessings
