We just ran across a special lot of these nice flat horn discs. They are generally round to oval in shape and polished on the edges and one side, with almost all being solid black. They are great for making pendants or inlays and they also make excellent spacers for knife handles and cup bottoms. Approximately 1/4" thick, they range in diameter from roughly 1-1/2" to 2-1/4".
Horn: An Amazing Natural Material!
Nearly a lost art in this plastic age of ours, the working of horn is a kept alive by a handful of European artisans. Since the earliest times, man has made combs and utensils from horn - malleable when heated, hard enough to create durable, long lasting tools.
