Did you block the horn? If not, the walls might not be thick enough to carve. It looks OK as it is though.

I checked how far it was hollow to an I made the stick fit the full length of the hollow part , say 2" up from the handle an it's solid all the way , iv seen a lurchers head carved into the tip an it looks real good but don't know where to begin to be honest

Those are one piece carvings from the solid horn. No birds or animals are stuck on.

Alan is one of the best
