This isn’t truly woodworking but I did use the same tool set for these knife handles as for my wood carvings. I have a customer that is a flintknapper that specializes in replicating stone tools made by Native Americans, prehistoric Europeans creating lithic art and needed some 20 Elk and Deer antler handles for his blades. Here are just a few of my carvings with an example of Don’s finished product and you can see Don Sutton’s work at

I like it! Cool stuff. Great details for custom knives and handles for other things.
