This pair of genuine mammoth ivory knife scales (Mammuthus primigenius) is presented in its natural condition – both pieces are not stabilized and /or injected with resin. The ivory of these pieces is rock-solid despite the tiny crack on the edge of one cross-cut section. These scales can be precision-cut, drilled, polished, sanded etc. with the same tools that you would use to work with hardwood. The colour of the bark is beige.
Age: Over 10,000 years
Origin: Sakha Republic (Yakutia)
Please take note that none of our mammoth ivory is artificially stabilized and / or restored unless explicitly stated.
