This knife has been ”SOLD” , but I can make another for you.

I started this knife on a rush order, only to find out that the customer didn’t like African Zebra Wood after I was too far along to turn back. So, I started another knife for them, and finished up this one for someone else to buy.

One side of this knife is ready for scrimshaw artwork. I’ve left it blank at this point, so that you can select the artwork you would like.

for more information, please email me:

Project Story:

This posting is of pocket sized custom folding knife. The single blade is stainless steel, with a brass and nickel-silver body, African Zebra Wood handle sides. One one side of the handle is an inlayed piece of curly Abalone shell, and the other side has an inlay of synthetic Ivory ready for scrimshaw artwork. The handle sides are held on with epoxy glue and hand-peened nickel-silver rivet pins.

I’ve built several knives in this size which fit great into a tooled leather belt sheath, which I can also build for you. I’ve also done small glass top presentation boxes for them if you prefer that.

If you are not sure what ”Scrimshaw” artwork is, you can read my blog on the subject here
