Mammoth ivory knife handle material
link to mammoth not sets, but bark, chunks to cut yourself as well as other fossils for handle material ideas raw mammoth ivory
Mammoth ivory is popular for knife handles. Here I offer matched sets for use as knife handles. Prices vary due to grade of ivory, color, weight , size . Some will be all natural, some stabilized, some stabilized and dyed. I try to distinguish in the description. All natural can be cost prohibitive! Unstable can fall apart! Some material needs filler in the back to make it flat, fill voids. Most material I find myself and originates here in Alaska and is about 40,000 years old. All is dry and been out of the ground over a year. I make knives myself so understand the fossil needs and can answer questions on suitability etc.

Alaska mammoth ivory back 13.2 ounces. 5 x 4 x 1/2 inch thick. Ok colors some alligator pattern. Colors not deep, but solid surface and another color layer 1/4 inch in (potential cameo cutting to this layer.) 1/8th of an icn of back is soft and probably not useable. 2 visible natural cracks, rest very solid. (see picture) Price reflects lack of colr depth cracks and soft back. (Better material is twice the price) This should make good knife scales. I'd use this myself, just too busy!
