Back by popular demand, I have 12 fossil walrus ivory handle sections and 2 pre-ban walrus handle sections. Walrus ivory is considered by many experienced knife makers to be the most stable, and desireable of all the ivories we use for handles. The new digging season has started but these have all been out of the ground for at least one year. As always, you have a money back guarantee, if you find it doesn't work for you when you get it in your hand, return it for your purchase price back, please do that within seven days. This is gauranteed to be legal material. I take all the normal forms of payment, Paypal, credit cards or checks. I am happy to answer any questions and I charge only the actual shipping charges, I ship using USPS flat rate priority mail and only charge actual shipping charges. Hope you like them. Please respond here, PM or email. Thanks for looking, Mark

No.11 is 5 long 1 X 1 1/2 small end and 1 1/4 X 2 on the large end. It is pre-ban ivory, you will get a letter on origin with it. The cracks showing are the natural ones in the tusk they are not deep and can be sanded out if you don't like them, would be good for scrimshaw. Asking $200.00

Asking $155.00 Sold to Phil
No.13 is an unlucky number so I will give this piece, at no charge, to the first person that sees this, and responds in this thread by saying "I would like the free number 13" just like that. This one was a freebie

I am not a maker and was being greedy for my own project. I withdraw my post. Beautiful material.
Well, I,m paying attention over here on this side of the pond - so, I would like free number 13.
Thank you very much.
Ok, you guys are fast and you are paying attention. Ed T you get it, send me your address. Sorry sigman you missed by a second or two and you got the wording a little off. Thanks Mark
Just so everone is clear, Ed T has withdrawn his post. The wording must be correct. It is still open.
If I take 5 ane 8 that would add up to 13....would they be free?
I'll take #10 please. Could you give me your PayPal e-mail address and a total? I will send payment in the morning.
