Kershaw Pocket knife - Mammoth Ivory Scrimshaw - Turquoise & Chine
Kershaw pocket knife, Ken Onion 1600 design. Made with Mammoth Chine Ivory and Turquoise stone featuring original Scrimshaw done by Brian Kiracofe.
The practice of scrimshaw began on whaling ships when the crew members were out at sea for unbearably long periods of time. They would engrave onto the whale's teeth to pass the time. Our store owner and resident artist, Brian Kiracofe, uses his scrimshaw skills to create the beautiful designs on each authentic scrimshaw piece.
