Case XX Ivory Scrimshaw matching Serial # Selling as a set

Postby Sharpnshinyknives » Thu Oct 11, 2018 2:39 am

I posted these to show them off a few months ago when I got them back from Gary Harbour. I bought these knives from Shepherd Hills Cutlery. I have the certificates from them that the ivory is legal. I have Certificate of Origin from Mr Gary Harbour who did the hand Scrimshaw work for me. Offering them for sale as a complete matching serial number set for 4800 dollars. Hand scrimed, one of a kind.
I will offer this as a set only for a period of time and then I will consider breaking up the set and sell off individually. I would much rather see this go as a set and stay together.
Please ask if you want to see more photos.
4800 is my asking price I will consider reasonable offers.
Thanks,
SSk

Thank you Gino. I had a lot a reservations about having them scrimed, but once I got them back, I was overjoyed at how nice they turned out. Plus only having scrim on one side gives someone the option to display them either way.
I hope they sell as a group. I would hate to break up the set. All have 034 serial numbers. Only 100 sets made. I don’t know how many actually bought all the knives that matched the first one we got the chance to buy. Shepherd Hills was wonderful to give everyone the fist shot at their matching serial numbers when they came out with the other patterns.
This truely is one of a kind.

Thank you Mike. You can never be sure when you make a decision to forever alter a set of beautiful knives like this. But I thought that they came out great. I prefere the ones w/ no people in them and just ships. I love the color on these. As a set, they all look really nice. I hope someone else will be enjoying them soon.

Wow, those are really something!! This is a very unique set and some excellent work done by Mr Gary Harbour. I am not familiar with him, but I am curious. Did he tell you how many hours he had invested in this set for the one side of each knife?
thank you

Gary Harbour did all the scrimshaw work for Kershaw for many years. You can actually search for his work on eBay. He also scrims knives that he sells from his studio. He does excellent work. He is a big believer in color scrimshaw and I think he is right.
I don’t remember the exact amount of time each one took. The process is very involved w/ taping the bolsters and liners, then sanding the surface and preparing it for the color. Then he usually works one color at a time on each of the pieces. Not sure if he could calculate the exact amount of time each one takes. I’m sure it’s several for each one by the time it’s done.
Thanks for the complement, they are unique.

Mark, I love scrim and think you have a magnificent set. Which you already know. It is with regret that after mature thought, I decided I do need to keep my car. Otherwise.......in a heart beat.

QS, Stop over thinking it, just do it, come on, just say yes. You can always take a bus or hitch a ride. But you won’t get another chance to own this set again.

:lol: Unfortunately we don't have public transportation in the countryside. As for hitchhiking, well, although folks are friendly around here I tend to frighten them.

Thank you. I just wish I could pass along all the praise to Gary Harbour, he is the one that deserves it.
So for those of you who have seen this, who do you know that would be interested in owning this collection? Is there someone who needs an idea of something like this to buy for that knife collector in the family for Christmas?
Just help me by thinking of those people and making a contact to show them the collection.
Thanks a bunch.
