A longtime favorite of knifemakers, Water Buffalo horn and bone are excellent knife handles. Generally, they come in black/brown with striations of creme color through them. The trick is to know how deep the color goes and in what direction so when they are profiled you get the cool swirls of color and not a pure black/brown handle. This horn has been stabilized and dyed red making it a striking choice for any type of handle.
This is an add-on to the Build- A knife Project you may have going. It’s $29 profiled and installed. Free options are available but if you have to have this color and uniqueness to your knife just add it to your cart and select your liner color in the Free Handles section.
Your spouse/partner will love it and might forgive you in a few days for building the knife. It’s that pretty. With a Damascus blade, Oh Lordy. That’s a right nice combo. !
