My buddy Josh met a paleontologist and sharpened some of his tools here in Madison. Apparently the customer had a whold bunch of dinasaur bones. Anyone think it might be cool to have a 10 million year old taradactile fosil ferrule (stabilized and maybe dyed) on their knife?

Holy shit I do!!!!

We're going to talk to him and see what might be possible. I think mamouth tooth is a slam dunk at least so we'll work on this.

BTW Josh is our in house knife sharpener and he does good work. He's just launching his sharpening business full time after working as an executive chef at a local restaurant. I'm sure he'll pop on and add to this thread as we get updates and see what's available.

Just think - you can have a knife with some tooth to the edge and a tooth on the handle :D.

That's awesome Mark. Those would be some of the sickest handles ever!

I'm in for that!! Just remember they are going to be very heavy! The Giraffe Bone handle (dyed and stabilized) I put on my Tanaka added around 100 gr to the weight of it.

I'll stick to accent pieces like ferrules and spacers if we do try some.

I loved dinosaurs when I was a kid. My favorite was triceratops. :) I would love to get a piece of a tricaratops horn for a spacer on one of my knives.

I'd be in for some. Mammoth tooth or tusk especially. But any bone. Confirm if it is indeed fossil, as that would take special tooling to work. Mammoth produce is "frozen" so when the dig it up, its still natural. No mineral displacement like how fossils are formed.

I'm in for that (on a Rodrigue knife or your new Hap40)...It will be awsome and unique.
