This cigar holder/divot tool is made from an elk antler shed. Elk (Cervus canadensis) are the largest members of the red deer family, also called Wapiti from the Native American Shawnee meaning white or pale deer, in reference to their pale colored rump. In fact, Wapiti is the preferred name used by scientists because the name "elk" was mistakenly applied to the animal by the early colonists in reference to the European Elk, which is actually more closely related to the North American Moose. Elk are noted for the impressive size of their antlers - grown only by the males, called bulls - which are regrown each year and reach spans of over 6 feet in just a few months.
In making this divot tool I tried to retain as much of the outer antler covering as possible to give it a more natural, organic look and also to retain the look and feel of the original antler. This is a fairly larger tool, just under 3" long and 1" wide. The cigar cradle is 1" long, 5/16" wide and 3/16" deep, suitable for a long and slender cigar, like a Lancero up to ring gauge 48. I would also work well for golfers who smoke cigarettes or who roll their own smokes. Weight is 10.23 grams.
