Calvin Robinson, Web Site


"The knife I made from your Moose antler sample

 is a Lanny's Clip,shadow pattern Slipjoint folder.

The Blade is .093" X 2 3/4" Sanvik 14C28N stainless steel @ 61 Rc.

and pivots on .008" bronze washers.

The knife is 3 3/4" long closed. All liners and pins are 416 stainless steel.

The beautiful dyed and stabilized Moose antler

scales were provided by Ernie Grospitch ,

all I did to them is sand to 600 grit and polish.

This knife can be seen at the upcoming Art of Steel show in

 Little Rock Arkansas September 20th - 21st if I don't sell it before.

The price is $375.00

Stabilized Moose Antler Test 

This Test Antler has unknown age.

There is very little color definition in the old piece.

The finished end has been dyed and Stabilized. 

The process/steps are still being improved.

The possibilities are enormous for knife handles. 

The stabilized end will polish and shine.

It could easily be left alone for the end of the knife handle

  It was donated as a test piece by Raymond Peterman, Salina. Kansas.

Raymond makes chairs and chandeliers from Moose antlers. 

So if you need to sit right and brighten up your room give him a call.
