I ordered some mammoth ivory scales to do a laminate handle.When the scales arrived they were extremely asymmetrical and I was a bit disappointed.So I epoxied up the scale anyway and decided to shape the facets uneven and wonky.I tried hard to make it look like I did not try hard:scratchhead: Please let me know what think. Thanx

Gives it character. As mammoth ivory is organic in nature, I don't expect it to be perfectly uniform; you have a true custom. Good job!

Hax the Cook CLEAVERS RULE!!! :D

Sweet looking handle - almost built in right, or left hand bias.

Very nice, love the contrast. I did that with bone scales a while ago and thought it was neat. Is that a bog oak ferrule?

I think it's cool looking. Is it a little chubby?
