Below is some information about the raw materials used by
Kerr Custom Knives in the custom products we offer.
Amber Amber is fossil tree resin, which is appreciated for its color and beauty. Good quality amber is used for the manufacture of ornamental objects and jewelry. Although not mineralized, it is often classified as a gemstone.
Ebony Wood Ebony heartwood is one of the most intensely black woods known, which, combined with its very high density, fine texture, and ability to polish very smoothly, has made it very valuable as an ornamental wood.
Desert Ironwood Desert Ironwood grows predominantly in the deserts of Arizona and California, USA. It is one of the hardest and densest woods in the world. The color may be like the picture here or any variation of light to very dark browns.
Cave Bear Tooth Fossilized Cave Bear Tooth from Ural mountains in Russia. The Cave Bear (Ursus spelaeus) was a species of bear which lived in Europe during the Pleistocene and became extinct at the end of the last ice age about 20,000 years ago.
Oryx Antelope Horn Oryx is one of three or four large antelope species of the genus Oryx, typically having long straight almost upright or swept back horns. Oryx horn has been used for making weapons and tools for thousands of years.
Mammoth Ivory Mammoth ivory, teeth and bones are also found along riverbanks where the rivers are running through deposits laid down during the Pleistocene Era. The color of the ivory depends upon the source of mineralization and the type of soil in which it was preserved.
Fossil Walrus Ivory Fossil Walrus ivory can range from 300 to 3,000 years in age. Fossil walrus ivory along with mammoth ivory are the most colorful of ivories. The term 'fossil' is really a misnomer, the term 'ancient' is more accurate as none of the ivory has yet turned to stone.

All Ivory used by Kerr Custom Knives in the products we offer is legal Ivory as defined by the U.S. Endangered Species Act of 1972.
