Does that say mammoth tooth spacer like the extinct beast wooly mammoth. That is pretty sweet. How much for that one?

They are extinct? My dreams of seeing a mammoth are crushed....j/k, yes it is from a wooly mammoth molar. I don't recall what Mark listed it at, 80.00 or so. I also have mammoth ivory :).

The mammoth molar looks stelar, however it is hard to work with, leading to a high failure rate and it is not for hard users (pro kitchens). If it drops or is pounded on hard surfaces the molar can crack. I am always looking for good molar, Randy Haas from HHH has some pretty good stuff and he has a stabilization process that makes it a little more durable.

Here is a new one I just finished up for one of my knives.
I love the way buffalo horn polishes up, like glass, I wish the pictures could convey the polish on this one, KOA ferrule, buffalo horn body:

This horn actually just came from Jantz.com, they are hit or miss on quality, but the past three months have all been good.
