Fossil knife handle materials
link to fossil mammoth ivory
This is where I offer fossil material other then mammoth ivory for knife handle material. This includes fossil bones, teeth bogwood etc. I am a knife maker myself so use this material and can answer questions you may have. Most of these fossils are from interior Alaska that I find myself and are about 40,000 years old. Some fossils like round bones are best for hidden tang style knives. Check to make sure the material will work for your projects! The prices here will be less than fossil ivory prices.

Mammoth ivory light color 5 1/2 x 5 x 1/4 inches thick. Stands on edge so good for display carving ir scrimshaw work. Hard, will take a polish. Uniformly thick. Not outer bark but close to the surface. One major crack showing in picture could effect carving or cutting for knife scales. But could add character to a carving. Lots of visual surface area for the weight, and thus good price for the visual surface available.
