  • Can you use a burner on stag horns ?

    I have many pocket knives with stag handles some are very nicely figured some are not.My question is: can a burner be used to enhance the dark grooves on the stag ? Has anyone tried this yet ?....thanks, Harold

    I think you can Burn but I also think you will have a problem with the Fumes, not good for you. Keep well ventilated and use low heat. Merle

      Sure you can. I watch an antler carver work in deer, elk and moose antlers. Major cutouts, wildlife scenes and individual animals = he's good. Power carved then uses a 2-channel Razr-Tip with one of every pencil & tip shape they sell (2 dozen?). Depending on the burn time and heat, he gets several shades of dark brown color tone.
