    That doesn't look like any burl I've seen... And it doesn't look like a knife or a TW-90, either...

    It's a mammoth ivory tusk.
    The blue stuff is the most valuable.

    That looks cool! What is it!? Some type of fossilized tusk?

    --edit --
    Ah, answered before I could even post! You're good!
    I haven't ever seen anything like that, all of the mammoth tusk I've seen only had little streaks and veins of that kind of color in it.


    How many handle blocks could you get out of a piece like that?
    I would sure pre-order one from you (and bet you that I'm not alone).
    How many pre-orders @ what price would you need?

    Although it is kinda sad to think about cutting something like that up. ..

    My guess is that Randy will own this by the end of the day.

    The guy who has it is not actively trying to sell it.
    He is a knifemaker I have known for a while.
    When I asked, he said maybe $3500.
