By now you may know I am quite a sucker for beautiful knife handles. Two of the most beautiful handles I own are also made of a special material: mammoth tooth.

US chef and handle maker Matt Delosso made a handle for my Masakage Zero out of Mammoth tooth with a brass bolster and anodized titanium and brass pins. Dutch knife maker, handle maker, leather worker and much more Frederiek de Vette made a handle out of mammoth tooth and bog oak for my Masakage Koishi. The bog oak is, like the mammoth tooth, very old (over 5,000 years) and both materials come from the same corner of the world: the former Soviet Union.

I will write a separate review of the Masakage knives. This post is about the handles.

I use PhotoBucket partially because they have a size limit cap, and when you upload an enormous pic to the site it reduced it's size automatically; I believe max size is either 1280x1024.
