I am fortunate to have a few knives scrimshawed by Brad, aka TXForce.  This Back Pocket remains my favorite.  Case XX 2011 Back Pocket - Tony Bose Smooth Antique Bone TB61546 SHOT Show Exclusive - End of Trail Scrim by Brad O'Brien - A true gentleman and friend (1943 - 2015).

Here is another Barlow Scrimshaw knife I picked up.

Comment by Alexander Noot on September 25, 2013 at 4:52

Chuck, about that tooth being resin or actual tooth. I found this:

Some usefull information there, based on that I suspect your piece being a resin piece.
