Scrimshaw Knife DIY Kit

Dec 13, 2017

Finding something truly unique to give your loved ones during the holiday season is difficult. Yeah, sure, you can get a great pair of shoes or even a nice watch – but they’ll always be only one of many. There is a solution to this problem, though. Introducing Mollyjogger’s Scrimshaw Knife Kit.

This kit continues an old American folk tradition of carving images and stories into whale teeth and bones. The Scrimshaw Knife Kit includes everything a beginner would need to carve out their own unique design; a steel-point scribe, half a dram of India Ink, a number of designs, transfer paper, and more. This way you can both gift a great American made knife (either a Bear&Son Lock Back or Barlow knife – both boast a 440 stainless steel drop point blade), and know that you’re giving something truly unique and memorable.

Purchase: $80
