January 19 work in progress

My current project is to scrimshaw the scales (that's the knife-people-lingo for "handles") on this sweet little William Henry knife. It's really small. The scales are pre-ban walrus ivory. The subject matter is Toucans. They will be in full color. This is a subject matter I chose (and I had to fight for these guys!) because it's a perfect fit on this knife! It's going to look fabulous.

The knife is disassembled, but here's what the scales and blade looked like before I started. The microscope ring light is making a weird reflection, sorry.

So far...
