We have managed to obtain a small quantity of mammoth ivory tusk from Siberia. It’s difficult to work and the pieces vary considerably. In tone and texture. It’s all Mammoth Ivory tusk from either the surface or sub-surface of a tusk which is over ten thousand years old. The surface ivory is riven by fissures of varying depths as a result of exposure to minerals and ice in the soil. We are extremely lucky to have a Sheffield knife maker prepared to work with this rare material and of course every knife made with it is totally unique in tone and texture
The Mammoth Ivory Sheffield made knives are one off knives - to see other knives which are one off’s click on the image above. The horn used in the grips of the knives of our other one off Sheffield made knives come with colours and patterns which are works of art and we list each piece separately.
Each pen knife comes with a letter on handmade paper telling you about the knife. The scales on the knife will be different on each side and this is entirely the fault of the deceased mammoth and not the knife maker. The Sheffield pen knife is gift boxed in a plain black box. See the care of knives page for carbon steel bladed knives.
Made with historic pieces of metal and leather are our keyrings. Worthwhile items with a direct connection to historic events created from material collected over many years.
Mammoth Ivory tusks have been encased in ice for a long time. The weathering and exposure to minerals in the ice has imbued the ivory with amazing colours and with a wonderful array of patterns.
Our folding knives made with Ankole horn from long horned African catle are now available. Remarkable tones with great natural harmony hand ground by Sheffield craftsmen they can be viewed by clicking on the image above.
This is the mammoth ivory before processing. Each knife varies considerably in tone and in the natural fissures occurring in the ivory. Because of the strictly limited availability of these mammoth ivory folding knives we will show an individual picture of each Sheffield knife. Each folding knife is a unique item and you will receive the folding knife pictured against each stock number. Each Mammoth ivory knife is both pinned and glued so all the fissures in the Mammoth Ivory are secure.
Because each Sheffield pocket knife is a one off we do not link them to the shopping cart. Send us an email to email@example.com we will send you an online invoice
