Chuck, what diameter do you NEED? I am not familiar with the sizes of cigar pens....

I am traveling (stuck because of weather but should be home tomorrow).
I had a friend show me some antler a few weeks ago and if he still has it and it is the right size.....

A lot of IFs......

Cigar pens use a 10mm tube, and the blanks (2) need to be 3/4" or larger to be safe, and each about 2 1/2" long.

Chuck -

My Cigar pens use two sections -- each needs to be a fat 2 inches

Top needs to be 5/8+ and the bottom can go down to 3/8 at the nib.

I can get 2-3 pieces from a small antler less tines. 

Have two pieces of antler from a fork horn (small ) that are around 3/4 at the base and will taper down towards that 3/8 at the tine end  Tines have been sawn off.

Yours for the address

Those have too large a porous center to be usable.  The drilling has to be in solid antler.
