    Morning on a flower

I particularly like the association with gold ... really really fantastic ! this should be a large block of ivory ...if some one know where I can find this...

    Hi, I did not post a lot in this moment...I just finish this order: a damascus fantasy sword with a damascus blade (252 layers), a carved mammoth ivory pommel and a carved ebony handle. It was a very long work , more than 250 hours, and I'm happy to see it finished! (better pictures here: http://www.elfic.fr/anglais/pages/sword.htm )

    Thank you. To get inside, I used dental drill tools, and for polish...I don't find the good words: a micromotor tool with silicone which contains an abrasive... ok, I found a picture of it!

    I completely forget to tell you that a friend of mine made a video of the making of this sword with all the step by step. There is a little translation (sorry, not complete). You can download the movies here: http://www.elfic.fr/anglais/pages/sword.htm the first part is for the blade, and the second is for the carving work. You will see how I'm working and then, can tell me some advises to do it better next time!

    Whale Teeth & Elephant Ivory

    Hello! (sorry for my english, I hope you will understand...) Working on ivory begins to be difficult today... I have a big old elephant tusk with cites, which I could use for a lot of years, but it's really difficult for business: CITES is ok for the one country, if I want to sale the piece at foreign, I must ask a new citec for each piece... I think mammoth ivory is the best solution, it's a good ivory for carving, and there is no problem for customs (when they know mammoth... ). The problem in this moment is to find good quality of mammoth, particularly with big white piece for carving...

    It is Summer! (in the northern hemisphere)

    hello, I' just begin a new "knife" handle. I will call it "Cernunos", I started on a big piece of ivory (720g), and for the moment I create only dust!

    Hi, sorry if the question had been asked... I have a special project, and I'm searching about a "big" piece of amber( big for me...). not colored or little colored if possible, with no crack (it' for carving) , and the dimensions are 5inch x 1 inch1/2 x 1 inch 3/4 ... Is someone can tell me where I can ask that? I'm searching too some piece of colored amber: red, green, yellow and blue 1inchx1 inchx1inch... Thank you very much if someone have some informations!

    Thank you! I don't have the word shargreen in my dictionnary. I suppose it's a fish in the same family with shark. Japanese bladesmith use it for the handle of katana. Janel, I'm always "here", but I read only , it's so difficult for me to answer and so frustrating not being able to share more ..
  22. Hi Janel, I was very busy too! I just finished the sword I worked on. I post it in "show and tell".
