I want to make ear spoons and combs out of an old moose antler. I know files is the modern way to do it, but what’s the primitive way? And if I use files, how do I make a little round hollow part in the ear spoon? What kind of files? Do you cut it with a hacksaw, or carve out grooves and try to break it along them? Also, how smooth/pourous is carved antler? Is it practical to use for wet messy things?
