handle design, material, and color contrast selections are very nice indeed!
I love the look of that mammoth molar. That is the perfect application of it, i think. It definately looks best when the whole handle is mammoth, like on this fillet knife. I believe it is to "special" or prominent to use as inlays with other materials or bolster material.
I've seen some pretty boring mammoth tooth, but the samples I've seen pierre use have all been great.
This knife makes me really impatient! Haha
Just kidding, take your time and keep doing what you're doing, Pierre!
How much more mammoth you got Pierre?
I assume if you run out, being in Canada and all, you can just go in your backyard and slay another one.

But, to be honest, we are the leading supplier of mammoth ivory, in the world. Most of it is purchased by Russians, but we get to keep the odd piece.
