It is, in fact the tip of the uppermost part of the horn that is used, since this is the most solid part. Black horn is obtained from the buffalo and is considered a very rare, high-end material. It can vary in hue from dark beige to black.
Recommendation: Although horn is a very solid material, it is better to protect your knife handle against repeated knocks and shocks. To preserve the shine and quality of your knife handle, never leave your knife to soak in water, or exposed to high temperatures (>50°C).
Clean your blade with a damp cloth, rather than holding it under running water. You should, of course, never put your knife in the dishwasher.
