I am trying not to be envious, but it's hard ;) Just curious, how do you cut the tooth, and will you have it stabilized? Charles Turnage always claims his material is professinally stabilized, but I was never sure what that really means.

Definitely amazing. The jaw bone tooth is a definite lifetime keeper. Impressive.

Stephan, We have been doing our own stabilization. STABILIZED MAMMOTH TOOTH (http://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/showthread.php/6401-Woolly-Mammoth-Molar-Tooth-lt-lt-SUPER-SIZED-gt-gt)

I dont know how or where Charles does his stabilization. I believe he may be the pro doing it :)

This was quite the find-- I was at a flea market and saw this a few months ago. Originally I was going to get it to cut the tooth up-- but after Randy and I started on this journey of teeth, I decided that this needed to be loaned to him so we could use it for the photos and such . It is such an awesome piece I couldnt bear to cut it up.
It just fit with what we are doing so very well and will for sure make a great background for some of the awesome work that the Randy's put out.

What a tremendous piece!

Great choice on not taking it to a saw.

Perhaps even a custom display case for it someday...
