Scrimshaw knife Irish castle done by Garbo on handmade knife with pre-ban African ivory scales. This is simply outstanding work all the way around. Garbo’s detail is amazing, especially the design on the harp frame. The Celtic knot engraved into the bolster is excellent. Signed by the engraver, Adlam. Really like the emerald in the thumbstone. Damascus blade tops it off. This is from the collection of one of our long time clients who is no longer with us. A true one of a kind for a discerning collector. Even better if you are Irish.
This scrimshaw is done on pre-ban African ivory. Since the passage of the CITIES Treaty in 1973, there has been no African ivory brought into the U.S. However, ivory that was in the U.S. prior to 1973 can be legally sold and shipped within the U.S. However, new legislation taking effect in 2016 restricts pre-ban African Ivory from being shipped interstate. It can only legally be shipped intrastate, (within the state). All of our pre-ban ivory is located with our associate in the state of Ohio. It can be purchased directly from our website and shipped only to an address within the state of Ohio. If one has a relative, trusted friend or business associate within the state of Ohio, we can ship to that specified address in order to comply with the new Federal legislation. The scrimshaw can then be forwarded it to you and everyone complies with the law. Any questions email or call us.
