It features a handle of Fossilized Walrus Ivory sourced from eroding coast line in Western Alaska, completely mineralized and distinctly colored with dark stripes. Such color in this fossilized material is very rare.
The natural shape of the fossil tusk was slightly flattened on one side, and Jesse used this to create a design that allowed the handle to fit flush with the body of the wearer. The Celtic knot work was applied to the curved side, sparing the flat side.
This Scots knife is dedicated to my wife and her family MacKay whose family roots are in the highlands.
