Ivory, brass, mammoth tooth, black, and mirror finishes
« on: October 04, 2021, 02:36:21 PM »
My wife decided she liked the Brow Tine model that I came up with for the kids for St Jude. So I put her on the list and finally got hers done this weekend. It was inspired by her handmade arrows and quiver that I made her a while back.  Now it just needs leather. Hope y’all enjoy

  • AEBL steel with a shallow hollow grind, rounded spine, tapered tang, and mirror polish
  • ivory handles with fossilized mammoth tooth ivory insert set off with black G10 and brass spacers
  • triple liners
  • handmade mosaic pin with brass and copper in it and a brass lanyard tube with an internal mirror polish



The mammoth isn’t actually crooked. It’s an optical illusion from being placed over a tapered tang and viewed at an angle.

That goes nicely with those arrows.
