Beautiful workmanship on this one, Randy. Wondering about the amber: is that the 'artificial amber material' you get from the usual suppliers or the real deal - copal or amber? I always thought about using amber but don't know whether it needs lapidary tools to work it.
Stephan. The piece came to me and was called Amber. But after sanding and shaping this piece. I believe its the man made stuff. not natural.
It was a very interesting challenge to sand these materials . The amber is much softer and easy to sand and the brass a little harder and the mammoth is very hard. Making sanding them even and uniform a real challenge to say the least..
Thanks Stephan for the complement on the knife. I appreciate hearing that from another artisan and creftsman like yourself!
