BONE, GUNSMITHING & KNIFEMAKER'S MATERIALS
Carefully dimensioned regular slabs of Water Buffalo horn for general stock and stock extension work, select pieces of buffalo horn for fore end caps. Knifemakers scales in Water Buffalo horn and peroxide treated domesticated Indian Camel bone.
Large, carefully prepared sections, cut at one end and with the joint/knuckle intact at the other. These pieces, averaging 12 - 14" in length will cut down for a variety of uses and will yield widths of 1.5" ( 37mm ).
A typical section will yield turnable knuckle section, 4 large (6"+ at full width) scales and leftover pieces. Thoroughly peroxide treated,seasoned, uniform in surface and colour.
As with other Camel bone pieces, they will take an Ivory like "sheen" in finish and will colour down similarly.
Rajasthani in origin, from long established supplier.
Flat backs, domed tops. Thickness will be in the range 6 - 9mm at domed point and 2 - 3mm at each side. Fine sanded, peroxided finish, will "weather in " to look like Ivory and excellent hard surface for Scrimshaw work.
Longer lengths of greatest use in restoration and historical reproduction work and may have minimal torsional twist to them. The 150mm and 200mm scales sell most often for open razor restoration work and bone modelling ( ships, boxes etc ) .
All quoted sizes supplied in pairs.
