ABOUT THIS PRODUCT
Model: Custom (Your Photo) Scrimshaw Knife
Prinsloo of South Africa
Description: Send us your favorite photo and a picture
of the knife design you want to have made (with approximate dimensions) and
we will have one of the most talented custom knife makers in the world and
one of the most skilled scrimshaw artists in the world collaborate on this
project to commemorate your special hunt, a milestone event or hunting partner
(human or canine). We can make your special photo come to life in either
black and white or colored scrimshaw on a piece of ancient Mastodon ivory which
is the perfect canvas for scrimshaw because it takes detail better than any
other type of ivory. Traditionally, scrimshaw is done on the left hand
side of the handle, but let us know if you want it done on the other side. If
you desire, we can also etch your name and the commission date along the bottom
of the knife’s tang. To our knowledge, no one else offers this
service and if they do it is unlikely they will be able to match the talent
of the team we have assembled. This Sporting Wood Creations exclusive is
the perfect gift for the discriminating hunter or huntress who has everything.
In the February 2006 issue of Blade Magazine, Bob Glassman stated, ”Thuens’s
knives are in a class by themselves”. Call us at (423) 975-7626
