Rough Rider Pocket Knife w/Scrimshaw Mermaid
Rough Rider Ox-bone handle knife with original scrimshaw by Brian Kiracofe.
- 3.75″ open
- 2″ shut
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 owner and resident artist, Brian Kiracofe, uses his scrimshaw skills to create beautiful designs on each scrimshaw pocket knife, along with many other pieces. Brian etches each design by hand into the bone on each knife and then uses ink to complete the design.
