    Two weeks ago I bought a carpenter measuring tool at an antique fair. The material is buffalo horn with brass inserts. Length is 36 Vienna zol. During these two weeks, I couldn't find anyone like this, or anyone who's seen it before. I want to find out when it could be made. Can anyone help me?

      Beautiful rule,! Why buffalo horn? How was that identified? Consider the possibility of ebony or other exotic wood. Great find regardless!
