Blade style 138, Fossil Walrus Ivory 
Eskimo Artifact "Sled Runner"









Alaskan  fossil  walrus tusk ivory has
become  one  of the rarest  of  ivories.
Buried for approximately 100 to 3000
years,  the ancient tusks and artifacts 
were excavated from privately owned 
land  in  old  village  sites  located  on
St.  Lawrence  Island.  Only  a  small
amount could be harvested each year
as the perma frost thawed back in the
summers.
Finally,  the  supply  came  to an end. 
Prices have risen dramatically.

The originally white ivory, buried for centu-
ries,  took  on  the  colors of whatever it was
buried in, making fossilized walrus not only
unique in beauty,  but is also a very durable
and stable handle material.

I always keep each piece intact as an artifact
and  work  with  it  in  its  natural  shape.  A
blade  size  and style is chosen to go symmet-
rically  with the individual size and shape of
each artifact for the beauty  and  balance of
each knife.

These are truly one-of-a-kind works of art.
