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 piece for the
beauty and balance of each knife.
These are truly one-of-a-kind works of art.
