    Looks good mate! Don't forget to seal the antler with some oil or wax.
    Owning a gun or knife and not using it, is akin to not sleeping with your girlfriend to keep her neat and tidy for the next bloke.

    No worries mate. Antlers more porous than you'd think, doesn't like getting wet, especially the core which can go mushy. Some folk like to seal antler handles with superglue.
