Whalers originally used the byproducts of marine mammals such as whale teeth and walrus tusks to etch these designs into. They would use an awl or a needle to engrave the designs and then rub soot or other such materials found on the ship to fill in the design and bring out the etching.
This one of a kind, congress style knife by Rough Rider features white smooth bone handles, nickel silver bolsters and 4 folding blades made of 440 stainless steel. Etched into one handle is a sperm whale and giant squid about to do battle in the oceans depths. This knife measures 3 5/8" closed.
All of our knives are inked with India Ink and sealed with Renaissance Wax, a trusted museum quality wax/polish.
