Antler knives of every description are frequently for sale on eBay.com. The types of knives vary greatly, with significant differences in length of blade, length of handle, style of knife, the type of antler (deer, elk, etc.), who made the knife, and more.
Some of the antler knives you will find are new, others are old. Some come with sheaths or display mounts, while others are just the knife by itself. Still others aren't knives at all: instead, they're a piece of antler so you can make your own knife.

What Are Some Of The Differences Between Horns and Antlers?
- Horns are made of a bony core that is attached to, and is a
permanent part of, the animals’ skull.
- Antlers grow from the animals’ skull, too, but instead of being permanent antlers are shed and re-grown, usually in an annual cycle.
- Horns are made of keratin (the same substance that is found
in reptile scales, claws, hooves, and human hair and fingernails) that
covers a bony core.
- Antlers are made entirely of bone.
- Horns are usually found in both the male and the female of
the species, and they can be straight, curved, or even twisty. Most
horns have only one point, and rarely branch out.
- Antlers are usually (though not always) found only in the male of the species, and typically branch out.
