    Contest - Drawing Sunday 5/20

    I received this from a customer/friend in Alaska.
    It is a piece of fossil Walrus Ivory.
    I have a bunch more pieces of this so I figured I could part with one of them.

    To enter the contest, just make a post telling what you would do with this if you win.
    I will use the random number generator on Sunday to see what post number wins the Ivory.

    I will use it as a very cool paperweight for a while, and eventually get it worked into something cool made by Randy or Del.

    I'd have Mike Henry use it in a handle, probably for a Shigefusa.

    Ferrule or spacer for a knife handle.

    Ferrule for a new handle on my Doi kiritsuke very likely.

    Probably a paper weight until I get to know how to make handles. Then a cool as# handle.

    I would have the face checkered to use as a small wasabi & ginger grater.

    I'd send it to Pierre to have him put it on a handle!

    I would use it on one end of a handle with Hippo on the other end to make a surf and turf knife!
