Scrimshaw

These are some examples of scrimshaw I did many years ago . I learned scrimshaw in about 1977 during my four years in the Coast Guard. I no longer do any scrimshaw, and do not condone or participate in the buying or selling of ivory in any form. Scrimshaw should only be done on discarded antlers, found bones, plastic simulated ivory and such. The item on the top row, 3rd from left, is a bear tooth I found while I was stationed at Cape Sarichef, in the Aleutian Islands in 1976. (All items close to actual size.)
