Buffalo horn ring

I had some pieces of buffalo horn left over after making my knife handle, so decided to make a ring for my finger.

I experimented with both flint and my knife blade to work the horn into a ring. The piece on the right of the picture is how the horn looked when I started.

To decorate the ring I etched my first name in Morse Code, filled the etchings with fine talcum powder and applied a coat of oil.
