James Purdey and Sons of London Mammoth Tusk Field Knife.
The blade is made from the finest damascus steel, and the handle is made from finely polished mammoth tusk which has a myriad of colours to both sides. This knife has particularly beautiful markings on the tusk.
It comes in a hand made bridle leather sheath with Purdey embossed fastener. Comes with certificate of authenticity.
The tusk is from a Wooly Mammoth - they roamed the earth over 1 million years ago, up to as recently as 4000 years ago. They were one of the largest mammals to ever walk the earth, often standing as high as four meters at the shoulder. The tusks measured as long as 16 feet. Over the millennia, as the mammoth became extinct, glacial deposits buried their giant tusks.
Mammoth tusks have been found in Europe, North America and Asia since the end of the last ice age. The Mammoth roamed across the land bridge between Siberia and Alaska during the ice age when parts of Alaska and the Yukon in Canada were free of ice. Mammoth tusks can still be found in creeks and gold claims in Siberia, Alaska and the Yukon.
