One-Off Blade.

Recommended Posts

I am a member on another forum,an alaskan guy on there is into knife making but this is the bollocks....Black obsidian flint-knapped blade....the ivory pommel is 25,000 year old mastadon tusk........the handle is 30,000 year old cave-bear jaw-bone........and the base is a section of bowhead whale vertebrae that's 200+ years old :icon_eek:

How does he know the age of materials? Very unique

I don't know mate,probably not carbon dating or whatever,maybe he just goes off the creatures extinction dates?He is an old guy lives in the boonies in Alaska,into grizzly bear hunting.

 

How much is he worth

I think he made it for himself mate,difficult to value something like that,hard to price as its a bespoke piece,but what a fantastic display piece in the house that would make.
