    Nice brushes, Steve. I particularly like the Red Deer antler handle.

    That 2nd Buffalo horn and the ox bone look very obscure. I dig 'em. Great Job.

    It's all good, even when it's not.

    A wee story regarding the bone.

    About four years ago I was walking my Spaniel along a fairly rugged bit of coastline, not far from the village. My dog found the bone and bought it to me, like a good dog should !

    The piece of bone was about eight inches long, and had been in the sea for some time by the look of it. I put it in my pack, thinking that it may, one day, be of some use.

    I found the bone in my workshop recently, and decided to try and use some of it. I opted to leave it as natural as possible once it was shaped. Hence the colour and slight texture that is visible.

    I finished it with beeswax.


    Many thanks for the positive comments.

    Steve, that dog deserved and extra treat for finding that bone. That is indeed one good dog and one great brush.

    Enjoy!
