But TC, I already HAVE horn...and I have a good supply of deer antlers too. The deer antler is harder to work with though, horn cuts easy and is easily shaped. I made some one-sided antler base buttons (from some sheds) for some capotes I sewed up a few years ago; I won't do that again. At least not without power tools. :groan:

Well, yes and no. Yes I did a spacer cut and close to fitted from the old cow horn I had. I kept sanding and fitting and it was getting close and then it broke into three pieces....I quit working on it. That was pretty frustrating. I've calmed down mostly now so I'll try again soon. This time I won't forget the basics...soak the damn horn in warm water to soften it up some! :groan: Horn gets good and malleable when its thoroughly soaked in hot water. Not soft mind you, but somewhat pliable. It can be shaped and formed and will take a set. That's the way I used to make spoons from horn.

Sorry if I talk like everyone's a dunce, but I explain things as if no one has any clue as to what I'm talking about. I feel certain there are those that really have limited to no experience in some subjects and working with horn may be one of those subjects. I'm no expert myself since I muddle through some of the things I do...like building black powder guns. But I learn new things along the way and forget some important ones too...like to soften horn some before working it. :groan:

Interesting... a horn spoon. Rather than a spork, would that be a sporn???

That can be the case I spose if one would take the time to file tines. My spoons never turned out very nice so I didn't make many of them and the ones I did make are used by us at rondy vous. I have this thing called stupidity. I insist on doing old timey things like the old timey peoples would would. So all my work is done by hand with the tools I either make or pick up off the ground, or both, with a few exceptions. If the folks would, or could, pick up certain items through trade I will use it. This would include metal items such as knives that are something that a mountain man could not have made themselves. Most everything else is stuff found on the ground in front of them. That would include bones, rocks, fire, etc. Working with just these items makes it tough and time consuming. They had that sort of time to do things however.

Now I know that horn softens in warm water.
