Buffalo horn custom Spartan

About a week ago I ordered a few water buffalo horn plates on Ebay and yesterday they arrived. After some inspection, I started with sawing, grinding, sanding and polishing... The result.... a god awful smell, loads of dust and an amazing smooth, shiny finish. I never expected that a rough material like this could result in a beautful smooth finish. Manipulating the material is fairly easy, and if you don't sand it too thin, you should do fine. This type of horn is dark black through and through and the only variation is in the structure. The small cracks and lines give it that "natural" feel. This is an awesome material...
