The handles of these case knives are crafted from fossilized Mammoth Ivory mined from the permafrost of Siberian Russia. The Mammoth, an ancestor to the modern Elephant first roamed the earth some 4 to 5 million years ago, and became extinct between 12 and 40 thousand years ago.
Because this handle has been underground for thousands of years, there may be large variations in color or surface finish. Fossil Mammoth Ivory handles may have lines, fissures or other imperfections that are inherent in this material and should not be considered as defects.
COMES PACKAGED IN VELVET BOX WITH A "CERTIFICATE OF ORIGINATION"
