That's really cool! I love the work bench too. You can tell it's actually seen some use.

i used it tonight for my dinner,it was so much better than a wooden one which generally puts my teeth on edge and didnt get hot like a metal spoon.

as for the bench,yep its seen some use,am currently making a set of arrows hence the broadheads.

definitely a good looking spoon - do you shape horn in the same way as wood?

wrt metal spoon getting hot - that is one of the things I love about my long handled titanium spoon - Ti is such a poor conductor of heat that the handle does not get hot even though I am stirring a boiling pot of whatever

That is SWEET. Imagine having something like that for the trail. You would be the coolest guy around the campfire.

I think I would put it on a lanyard and wear it for a necklace.

prety much ,when heated it becomes maliable and can be moulded to shape then shape the rest with knives,saws or files.

i will be doing a tute on how to make one soon and will post here.The forum ruler says you can. Hopefully sending stuff from Europe to here isn't a problem. I can't wait to see the tutorial. I've done some wood carving but never thought about tackling horn.
