    Here is a handle I just made on a Carter funayuki from a magnificent Burl Source block of colored and stabilized maple burl with a Musk ox horn ferrule. The Musk is translucent so you can see the colour of the burl straight through it making it "auto match" the wood.

    Thanks Rick. I just love my hobby when I can get hold of beautiful materals like these. The Musk ox horn really surprised me. It is very stable and cuts, drills and grinds very well and it takes a beautiful polish. To bad it is so pricey and hard to come by. This particular piece is from Greenland. The maple burl was as hard as Ironwood but it behaved beautifully and was very well stabilized.

    Harald.

    Beautiful work, Harald. And thanks for the musk ox info, I had looked at those for a while but wasn't sure whether they would work. So you used it unstrabilized, right? In any case, it looks fabulous!

    Yes, Stefan, I used it unstabilized. Time will show what the shrinkage is on this material, but it seems very dense and stable. As the horn is quite burly I believe it is less prone to crack like buffalo or cow horn.

    WOW!!!!
    That handle is beautiful!
    Thank you for posting the photos.

    The musk ox really looks good with the burl.
    Mark Knapp a knife maker in Alaska uses it quite a bit on his knives.
    He sells the musk ox pieces as well. I think they should call the blocks ingots instead of blocks. It sure is expensive stuff.
    But......oh baby, it sure looks good!
