By re-worksd knives, I mean modern knives that have had new handles made out of exotic woods, bone, Mammoth teeth, Mammoth ivory, and last, but not least, gem stones... like opal, or jade! There are some beautiful knives out there, and in my collection that are worth of attention.
And here's one made by Ed Olson in Texas. A dear friend and fellow Ford lover. One of his carvings was featured on the August page of the WR Case Catalog along with one of my Seahorses. This is... Cottonwood seed! You know those things that look like snow flying all over the place in the spring? That's it. Stabilized cotton wood seen. And my friend Bill Evans invented the "layered Blue Jeans" handles. It's beautiful, and works like any other acrylic. Shines like a diamond in a goat's behind!
And finally, Gavalia Seed pods from Australia with Kangaroo inlay bu Bob Picklesimer.
And here's a link to one from Michael Hoover on Fox Island up in Washington State. He is a master gem cutter and comes up with some beautiful stuff! Since there are some high powered Elephant Toe collectors on here, I thought you might be interested. Even though it's not an antique. It's still awfully beautiful!
