    Bone Scraper

    A friend gave me this elk leg bone that was already formed into a hide scraper. It had no frills at all just a plain bone color. I asked him if I could take it and give it a little make over and this is what it looks like now.
    The blade is 5" long and the total length is 10 1/2". I dyed the bone, carved some symbols on the blade and gave it a raw hide wrap with a lanyard that has an antler tip as a bead.
    As always any and all comments are welcome.

    Looks good! Reminds me of the leg bone knife from Apocalypto. Is it sharp enough to cut, or just scrape?

    BONE IT BABY! Awesome Wade. I saw some hide scrapers at a show, handles on both ends and sharp in the center. You are the bone finish man, enjoyed it........Randy

    Very interesting! A neat twist on knifemaking. A step back from steel. I like it

    Thanks for the comments. This was a fun one.
    Stormcrow, The edge is not very sharp but rather thick and if you are right handed the grip is perfect for scraping. Wade
