Paul's Knives Custom Knife Mammoth Ivory Handle With Scrimshaw, very Rare

SKU: A9467S

This is an exceptionally rare knife and a true piece of art by Paul Arestan. This type of clean & untrated Mammoth ivory is really rare and very hard to come by. This ethically sourced handle is hand engraved by Paul Arestan to match with the beautifully multi-etched blade, which is also a truly unique work and is exclusive to Paul.


The sheath is made by Shane Partridge of Black Blades who is regarded as the best sheath maker in Australia. His sheaths are masterfully crafted and carefully finished. This example features a snake skin inlay and a belt loop.


Paul Emmanuel Arestan is a French-Australian knife maker based in Brisbane Australia. Paul has his own eclectic production that changes all the time depending on his inspiration, he also take commissions and runs knife making classes. Paul is nothing short of an artisan. His knife making techniques are unique to himself and his combination of modern and traditional materials is exceptional. Paul happens to be a master at blade etching too. He hand paints every little detail on the blade, using bitumen paint and applies his unique multi-step etching technique to create a variably raised pattern on the blade. Paul's knives are artistic, one of a kind and truly beautiful. And the good part is he doesn't make the same knife twice!
