    That is simply gorgeous, Cal! Two questions: Is the handle actual ivory and who did the scrim? I don't even need to say the damascus is fantastic, it speaks volumes for itself. That is one beautiful knife!

    Wow, that is true art! Amazing. Love everything about it. That looks like the famous 'shock wave' damascus.

    Very nice love the damascus and scrimshaw. Is the handle ivory or bone?

    What they said. Another exceptional bit of work. I'd also like to know more about the handle material.

    Myth the handle is some type of micarta that I picked up years ago at a show. I am told it scrims a lot better than ivory and I think it shows even better detail because the scratch marks ar so fine and does not chip.

    I'm guessing that's it's white paper micarta. I've used it for scales and it really does look like ivory, at a fraction of the cost and fuss.
