Horn is somewhat difficult to flatten, so try our pre-flattened, polished pieces. Perfect for making things like combs, knife scales, cup bottoms, lantern panes, etc., and we now have them in Black in addition to Amber! Size and thickness varies slightly on these but they are ready to use and can easily be sanded down thinner if required. Approximate thickness is 3-4 mm, or about 1/8".
