    It's a good thing that cutting/grinding/sanding antler stinks something awful huh? Man that smell gets in your nose for days, I started using a respirator when I was working with antler and bone.

    Nicely done, Issac
    So I'm not the only one who's used the pet store antler for making things huh??? I got a Damascus steel Sgian Dubh blade blank and fixed it into a elk antler point, maybe not everyone's cup of tea but I love it 😊
