Buffalo Horn back strips

Buffalo Horn back strips


Take a look at the catalogue entry for "full horns". Backstrips are a little more expensive, having handling + cutting included in the price.

You receive the "back strip" material with it's natural internal and external surfaces untouched, ready to dress down and dimension. These are lighter in weight to send overseas, so saving on shipping costs and with the cutting already done for you. Typically a very generous 50mm+ in width, and your specified length on the outer arc.
Photo shows backstrip removed by bandsawing from typical , suitable horn. All horns will of course have weathered outer surfaces, some more than others - the potential of the piece should be assessed from the smooth inner surface outwards and not from the rough outer surface inwards. We can forward either "just" the strips ( to save carriage costs ) or strips plus offcuts where carriage costs are quoted ahead of payment and approved by you. If you want the leftover material also sent....mention this in the comments field at the end of the ordering process please.
80 - 90cm horns are RARE and take time to find in bulk stock - thus a premium is payable and the order may take A FEW WEEKS to enable selection from bulk stored material.
