Oh great...I got some buffalo horn.

I bought some scales of buffalo horn to put on a knife.
They were a little warped so I got them flat on my disc sander.
After doing a search on here about how to work with it I find out its not worth a crap to use as knife handles.
Lots of complaints of warping and splitting after pinned down.

Why is this stuff being sold as knife handle material if its that bad?
I havent put them on yet but am now wondering if I should.

Anybody use this stuff with good results?
