Cougar Scrimshaw

Knives 2001

Cougar Scrimshaw

One of my earlier works, featuring BG 42 and and inlay-ed black paper Micarta ® handle. The handle was scrimshawed by master scrimshanders Gaétan Beauchamp with 3 cougars and while the image is great, the image does not do the quality work of Gaétan Beauchamp justice.

The little Charoite and desert-ironwood handled fixed blade knife gives the impression of a jigsaw puzzle pieced handle.
