Have any of you here had experience working with antler? I know it's hard stuff but what if any are the pros and cons with it?
I'm thinking of topping a hiking stick with it or a maybe handle on a cane.

I've used slices of antler as spacers on several sticks. Nice stuff. I can't really think of any cons with using it. Pros: gives the stick a nice back-woodsy feel (especially if you leave the natural texture), smoothed down it can almost pass for ivory which looks great when you want that look, a nearly epoxy-ready hole down the center.

I've never tried a full crown on a stick, but I have made a few knives with antler handles and they felt great in the hand.
