Cervids are a family of mammals that includes deer, elk and reindeer. Among the different species of deer, antlers from European and Sambar deer are often used to make materials for cutlery.
The European stag, also known as the red deer, is the largest species of deer in Europe. It is easily recognized by its branched antlers, which can measure up to a meter in length. European stag antlers are prized for their hardness and strength, making them ideal for making knife handles and other cutlery accessories.
Sambar deer, on the other hand, is a species of deer found primarily in Asia. Sambar deer antlers are also highly prized for cutlery because of their fine texture and distinctive reddish color. Sambar deer antler knife handles are particularly prized for their rustic and natural look.
It should be noted, however, that deer hunting is strictly regulated in many countries, especially in Europe. The antlers used for cutlery are usually from deer that have been hunted for their meat, not for their antlers. Artisans who work with deer antlers also make sure that the antlers come from sustainable and ethical sources.
In conclusion, European and Sambar deer antlers are a great material for cutlery because of their hardness, strength and fine texture. However, it is important to remember that deer hunting is strictly regulated and artisans working with deer antlers strive to adhere to ethical and sustainable practices.
