The Tesoro button lock knife features a VG-10 steel blade in a titanium handle, inlaid with woolly mammoth tusk on both sides and includes a pocket clip.
The material in these knife handles is fossilized Woolly Mammoth Tusk, the undersides of Woolly Mammoth tusks often show wear, suggesting that they were used in scraping snow and ice off of the ground cover of vegetation during feeding.
They also used their tusks for protection from predators, attraction during mating and as a display of dominance to other Woolly Mammoths. We proudly show our respect by using this material in our best knives.
About Santa Fe Stoneworks
Bill Wirtel's century-old ranch house at the foot of the southernmost Rockies, is home to the Santa Fe Stoneworks studio. He left his job in 1978 to start his own shop in New Mexico’s legendary jewelry mecca and still hones the blades for Stoneworks’ gorgeous knives alongside his son and daughter to this day.
Every knife we’ve selected from Santa Fe Stoneworks’ robust line of heirloom-worthy knives is painstakingly hand-finished with a gem-quality handle.
