Noel, I didn’t see your post on boar tusks, but did see this one. My
experience with West Coast ferral(spelling) pigs in Mendocino County.
They are HARD !! A friend of mine does schrimshaw and I got a couple
of nice tusks and gave them to him. A couple of days later we saw
each other and he said the “scratching” tool just slipped off the
surface and didn’t cut at all. So I don’t think they would be good
Also, they are hollow and they tend to crack.
Hope this gives you a bit of info. even though it may not be what you
want to hear.
