3" Damascus Steel Lockback Knife: Woolly Mammoth Tusk
Damascus Steel is characterized by its strength, edge holding ability, and its dramatic appearance. The Damascus Steel used in these knives comes from Japan and is called "Sanmai Damascus" or Sandwich Damascus. There is a core of vg-10 steel with 16 layers of stainless steel on each side to produce a rust free Damascus look blade. These 3" lockback knives have a closed length of 3" with a 2 1/4" blade.
Woolly Mammoth Tusk
The material in these knife handles is Woolly Mammoth Tusk, the undersides of Woolly Mammoth Tusks often show wear, suggesting that they were used in scraping snow and ice off of the ground cover of vegetation during feeding.
They also used their tusks for protection from predators, attraction during mating and as a display of dominance to other Woolly Mammoths. We proudly show our respect by using this material in our best knives.
Mammoth fossils are 150,000+ year old natural material so patterns and colors vary on each knife, No two are the same! These Photos are representations of the Material, actual products will vary in color and patterns.
