Mammoths ruled the ice age and now they rule in making hunting knives because you can’t get around the handles with the mammoth’s tooth. This material is highly valued in knife making and the need for this type of material is growing. The mere fact that there is a history about 10,000 years old on the knife never leaves anyone indifferent. Elegance, sophistication and luxury are the features of knives whose handles are made of this precious material.
There are other materials from which the handles are made. Synthetic materials are much more applied and the price is much more affordable. There is also an exotic tree on the market, whose process of creation is almost identical to a mammoth tooth. The difference between an exotic tree and a mammoth tooth is in the amount that can be found in nature. The tooth is much less common than wood.
IDEAL STEEL WITH THIS HANDLE
That the handle does not form a knife is shown by bad steel, which blunts quickly after use and needs more frequent sharpening. Many years of experience in making hunting knives have shown that the steels of Uddeholm and DAMASTEEL are one of the highest quality on the market.
Although the material is so praised and appreciated, it is sensitive to external influences and is therefore exposed to the stabilization process. Stabilization is a process that provides additional protection using various chemical agents. In this way it is protected from decay.
Every passionate hunter, fisherman or hunting knife lover has one such knife in their collection. Also, you should never use someone else’s knife, you should have your own.
They are found in various sizes, shapes and colors. The characteristics of the teeth depend on the conditions and processes that took place during fossilization. There are a large number of slits of different dimensions on the tooth. Because of that, two completely identical teeth cannot be found. Thanks to so much variety and a huge selection, each handle made of such a refined material is unique.
