This knife will give you a mammoth bone. At least a few inches long. Perkin Knives sells a ton of “Damascus” steel* blades on Amazon, many with favorable reviews. But this particular pocket knife, handmade with a mammoth bone handle and swirling topo map blade design, has both the most and the most glowing of them.
While some say the mammoth bone piece is a little too large to use as an EDC pocket knife, the Perkin quality and craftsmanship receive universal praise:
“Wow what a beautiful knife!”
“The pictures don’t do this knife any justice.”
“The truth be told, this $80.00 handmade knife has superior workmanship to several of the better-known brand name knives, that have been delivered to me these past months–including one costing over 4X as much!”
The blade is rated 56 – 58 HRC on the Rockwell scale and measures 4″ from handle to tip, with a 1/8″+ thickness at its thickest point. Handle length is approximately 5″. A handmade leather pouch is also included with each mammoth bone pocket knife purchase.
*In accordance with the grumblings of some readers, and confirmation via Wikipedia, I put “Damascus” in quotes because the historical method of producing this steel was lost sometime around the 18th century. While some claim to have figured out how they done it in the 3rd-century Middle East, a precise duplication of the metal has not been confirmed.
