Impressive, what tools do you use for your antler carving? Do you treat the antler in any way to make it softer before carving?

Hello Trich, 
Sorry for my slow reply but I just got a notification that you asked a question today. I use a tool similar to a dentists that carves out teeth for filling. Bits range from carbide to diamond tip and we carve antler as well as bone in the solid state it is in. It can take up to a month of evenings to make a large size handle
