The post about bone handled knives made by another member made me think that maybe somebody would like to see my latest engraved powder horn. The first few pics are before dyeing to show the scrimshaw a little clearer. My scratchin' skills could use some practice, but it's not bad for one of my first horns.

what do you use to engrave with?
I use a Coulter Precision scribe. He sells on eBay, but I see he doesn't currently have any listed. If you're interested, I can post a picture of my scribe and give you the contact info that I believe I still have.

do you do home made tattoo partys ??
Nope, no tattoo parties. [rofl]

My deer are kinda crude, but are patterned after scrimshaw on original horns from the mid 18th century. Keep in mind, most original horns were engraved in the field by their owners using their knives or whatever else was available to scratch the horn with.
