Scrimshaw Knife needed

My mom is looking for a scrimshaw folding knife for my Dad for his birthday. Ir should show a fox head or a fox in some sort of scene. Anyone know a good source or someone who does this kind of work?

Is not the fancy knife I'm sure you're looking for, but may be a start to searching for a scrimshaw artist.

Thanks for this. I'm hoping to find something in either bone or ivory. I'v found lots of the imitation ivory ones and while Dad probably wouldn't know the difference by looking, I would. Dad is into collectors pieces.

hey.
I just spoke to my dad who deals in this type of thing. He said:

"I found where the knife is located. I brought it down to Antique Emporium when we went in October. It has not sold, but they said someone local was very interested.

"It is a high quality Schrade boxed scrimshaw knife--antique which has never been used. It has a Golden Retriever scrimshawed on the side. We have it for $100 at Antique Emporium If your friend wanted it, we could sell for $54.00 and have them send it directly to you via Priority Mail and insured. If your friend would like this let me know and I will call them and have it set aside and shipped right away."

Just let me know.

Re: hey.
Thanks for the help kiddo. I found a place that has an artist on staff and they agreed to do a small Swiss Army knife with bone handles and a fox motif with my Dad's initials for $40. I'll keep your Dad in mind though. I didn't know that's what he did.
