    Great looking knife!
    BTW: how many mammoth fossils do you have in your garden?

    In my garden none that I know of.

    In my cupboard... most of my handle material is fossil. Firstly because I love working with fossil. Not only is there the historical aspect, but because fossil is often cracked or porous, it's ideal for stabilizing. And secondly I have a little daughter who is very fond of animals, and working with materials for which no animals were killed by us makes her happy.
    After the camel bone funeral, I virtually stopped using modern animal materials, except for buffalo bone. For some reason buffalo don't count
