Tusks harvested from permafrost zones or glacial ice. They are notable for their particularly attractive brownish colouring and are highly sought after by knife-makers and collectors alike.
The fascinating, 10 000 year old relics are the fossilized tusks of the Siberian woolly mammoths (Mammuthus primigenius). The pieces offered here have a lively surface pattern, polished, with a flat ground back. Can be used as handle scales, for turning an ordinary knife into a unique rarity.
