That's a sleek looking knife.  How was the mastodon ivory to work with?

Thanks.  The ivory is the inner parts from a tusk that is pretty busted up.  Some of it can't be worked at all, it's like chalk, but mostly it's like working bone, slow speeds and sharp belts are best.  It's like silk in the hand.

NIce work, like the thinner, flexible stabby one’s and this fits the bill.  Nicely done.  Clint

Geoof, simple is good and that one is great! I think too often makers seem to try and throw everything but the kitchen sink into a knife!!

 

Simple is like a woman with just a hint of perfume, clothed in a way that has your imagination working overtime to fill in the rest of what your eye can't see! 

 

A simple knife hits all those marks, not to much perfume and just enough visual to make you want to pick it up and get to know it!! mike drop.jpg
