Fossil Folders

I made these knife scales utilizing  the roots of  the teeth and  sections of large vertebrae from 50-million year-old  marine fossils that were found by a friend on the Sulphur River in northeast‚Äč Texas.

The rare jaw fragments are from a 25 foot fossil fish, (Xiphactinus.)  I used a diamond saw to cut just below the gum line of the jaw to expose the beautiful roots of its teeth.

Damascus Folder made with a 20,000 year old Dire Wolf fang inlaid into black palm wood. I used a diamond saw to slice the fang through its length so that both sides would be matched.  

The emblem of the wolf howling at the moon and the wire rope are made of sterling silver. The bolster and liners are made of antiqued nickel silver. The blade is high carbon damascus steel.

The wolf fang was discovered by an acquaintance of mine in Alaska.
