    Mammoth tusk

    Getting ready to start processing this tusk section for a special project.

    6 Knife set, 4 Steak knives and a Scimitar slicer and custom fork.

    Mammoth tusk is exceptional piece I sourced to make the matching handles. Was a HUGE challenge to find a suitable piece the right size and with the right look.. But now its time to get started and Im stoked and humbled to be able to work this amazing piece of history.

    Got the saw set up. New blade installed and adjusted. Getting ready for some serious tusk cuttin!
