Note about scrimshaw knives: The knife brands shown are not always available or not always suitable for scrimshaw work. I work with the best handle material I can find. If I receive a knife that is too pitted or has too many pockets in the bone material, that knife is not scrimshaw engraved. The specific knives below are available for purchase, but I will repeat the illustrations in the future on other knives. They are still "one of a kind" as they are illustrated by hand and the position of the lines and the all-over illustration will change from knife to knife.
Bone is a pitted material by nature. Therefore the "specs" are to be expected and not considered defects. It is not possible to find bone material that doesn't have some of these. As I have stated above, I try my best to use the best material I can find.
These are colored with thinned down Windsor Newton oil color. The color, as well as the black & white illustration, sit in tiny scratches engraved into the surface of the bone material. See "About Scrimshaw" page linked below for more information about the artform of scrimshaw.
Each comes with a "Certificate of Authenticity" where the piece is named, dated and signed.
