Namikawa Hebei sells the raw materials for both, if you have the capacity to make them.

I got a few from Moses at the last show in San Francisco. He may have some. I got bamboo, he didn't have horn I don't think.

My concern would be there are a variety of sizes of mekugi-ana and handle thicknesses, so some fitting will be required...and if the mekugi is undersized, could be dangerous. Having made them for my own swords, no two have been alike.
