This is a beautiful pair of handle making scales for making a knife.
This is a set of naturally occurring buffalo horn. They will often have natural yellow/gold streaks going throughout them which gives an exceptionally handsome look. They look very impressive and will make a gorgeous handle for your knife. We have these custom made for our store and you wont find these anywhere else.
You get 2 scales with each set.
Dimensions: • Length: 5 inches approximately • Width: 1.5 inches approximately • Height: 3/8 inch approximately (Thickness varies with material texture)
Note: This item is made with naturally occurring animal material. Each piece will be unique and may vary in dimensions, color, thickness or texture.
Tips for working with this buffalo horn: • As buffalo horn is a very dense material, colored dye is only able to penetrate the very outer layer of the horn (1-2mm deep approximately). If thinning the scales is required, it is recommended that you sand the back-side of the scales (facing your blade's handle), to leave as much of the outside of the buffalo horn as untouched as possible. • When shaping your handle, it is recommended to leave as much of the flat, colored outer surface of the buffalo horn as untouched as possible. In this manner you will retain as much color as possible in your final handle. • Sometimes the pieces may require sanding to become perfectly flat. A standard belt sander works well for this job. • When working with buffalo horn, any sanded or cut portions will turn a dull gray color. This is normal, and is not the final color. The final step of buffing and polishing buffalo horn is a must, as it will darken and become glossy with a brilliant sheen. Note: This item is made with naturally occurring animal material. Each piece will be unique and may vary in dimensions, color, thickness or texture.

They had it listed as shipping on time, but when I tracked provided tracking number it had not even been picked up yet. The website said order would ship in 1-3 days and I paid extra for shipping. When I contacted the seller who had it listed as shipped he canceled the order and stated "Tony, I have to be honest. I really don't like being hassled about shipping speed when I am within my stated times. I do understand you want your items fast, and you seem to be in a hurry. But you are trying to make your problem (of not having enough time) into my emergency. This bothered me so much that I retrieved your package from the outgoing mail and just now sent you a full refund. I would rather not do business like that. Please shop elsewhere."
