In the early 19th century, whalers could find themselves at sea for up to two years at a time. With very little to do, some whalers would spend hours and hours etching intricate scenes into whale teeth and bones. This incredible art became known as scrimshaw. The Marble's Wildlife Scrimshaw Series celebrates that art with intricate etchings of the animals of the wild. 4 1/8" closed four blade. Stainless blades. White smooth bone and stag handles with nickel silver bolster(s). Front handle features wildlife scrimshaw style artwork of mountain lion. Packaged in commemorative cardboard gift box with vacuum formed insert.
