Antler Knives

Excellent selection of antler knives in different types, styles, and sizes for sale.

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. You must read the seller's description carefully to know the specifics on any antler knife you are interested in.

From eBay and Etsy

Antler knives are commonly made from both real antlers and reproductions (faux). Read the item's description carefully to know what any particular knife you may be interested in is made of. Note: Many (but not all) of the antler knives from Etsy can be customized or personalized.

What Are Antlers?

Antlers are a bony growth at the top of the skull found on some members of the animal family Cervidae. This family includes deer, elk, moose, and others. Antlers are most commonly found on males only, but in some cases (such as with reindeer/caribou) can also be found on females.

Antlers are grown, shed, and re-grown, usually on an annual cycle. When an antler falls off due to the natural growth and re-growth cycle, the fallen antler is referred to as a "shed." Many items, such as antler knives, are made from sheds.

Save The Knife For Later

If you find an antler knife for sale on Etsy that you like but you're not ready to purchase it right away, you can always add it to your shopping cart so it will be easy to find later.

Important: Putting items in your Etsy shopping cart or "Save for later" list does NOT reserve them! It just makes them easier to find if they're still available when you come back.
