Also, I get clean bones from pet shops, better to make something from them than to be gnawed by a dog! Most come with "marrow" goop in the middle but shop around and you can find bleached ones with no filling and nice flat areas. They are usually £1-£2 each.

I've avoided the filled ones and the crusty roasted ones so far, though i have messed around with ones from the butchers - i just buried those for a few months (as an experiment as much as anything) which got rid of the gunk but left the bones very grimy looking and in need of bleaching.

Yesterday's were clean as a whistle and 1.99 but not so big... i avoided some much bigger ones as they were smoked and roasted and i didnt really want my resultant weapon to smell like a packet of crisps or to have to clean the thing.

handle looks comfortable - I wonder if hide was also used with flint knives I would think it was a quick method if you had the binding.

Makes sense. I've seen some Australian blades bound like this method.

Wrapping in hide is a good idea, I might try it with a few daggers.


There's a shop here selling them, minus the hide.

Also I stumbled upon this by accident while searching. It seems aliens make the best bone daggers.
