Easy Antler Kilt Pin

Recommended Posts

I'm always puttering around making things, after making the handle for my Sgian dubh I had a few antler scraps sitting around.

So why not make a quick easy kilt pin right?

I sawed off an antler tip, polished up the cut side a wee bit and drilled a hole in it to epoxy a small rbad to the back so I could use a hat pin catch to secure it.

10 minutes of work including letting the 5 minute epoxy set and there you have it!

Nice. As always, waste not want not. Motto of knife makers.

Nice!

I used a neodymium magnet on mine... unfortunately, it fell into a festival toilet, a few years ago. (my fault, not the magnet's)

Live & learn.

I am currently using the kilted Lego bagpiper that I turned into a kilt pin, he's a pretty cool little dude.
