I made a trip to Houston recently to visit my brother and had the chance to stop by the brick and mortar store of Texas Knife Supply. I found a really nice cut of mammoth tooth that I’m waiting to use on a really special knife. While some knife makers use bones and horns from endangered species I feel okay in using an already extinct animal. I hear most of this comes from Russia and is anywhere from 10,000 – 150,000 years old. I also understand that this is not dyed. This is the natural color of the inside of the teeth. The colors are crazier in person. Also, this is super fragile and will require some type of backing before going on the knife.
