    Corkscrews?
    Church keys?
    Knife handles?
    Letter openers?

    Anyone have any simple projects and hardware/materials sources to use up excess horn in creative ways?

    You could put a bottle opener on the end, flip them upside down as candelabras.

    Also, cane/umbrella handle.

    Depending on how you cut the horns, they could be made into knife handles or spacers.

    Here's a picture from Kanana Safaris. I plan on using the same idea one day in my trophy room for door handles. The only thing I'd do different is drill holes half way from the backside and epoxy the bolt heads in from the back and drill holes to match through the cabinet doors.

    Cool photo @Sand Rat! I like that idea- good way to spruce up the bar a bit.
