From the days of whale hunts to the American frontier, our Scrimshaw Knife Kit takes you back in time to when men scribed story telling images into whale teeth and buffalo bone. This kit includes a natural bone handle knife, step-by-step instructions, and everything else you need to learn and apply the forgotten art form. Whether you choose a classic sporting scene, phrase, or your initials, no other knife will be quite like yours.
