This Knife Bolo Tie -Savorite Handle tie is a real showstopper. The herringbone pattern of the Saivorite material used for the handle of this string tie is the highest quality imitation ivory. It is sure to fool most people. The varied grain pattern looks remarkably similar to the Schreger lines seen in genuine ivory and makes this a great versatile accessory. This Savorite handle is an excellent scrimshaw canvas.
The knife blade itself is stainless steel, with a smooth blade bevel without a sharp edge. Since its not a functional knife this eliminates possible cutting accidents.
The 6-ply leather cord is a luxurious 42” in length, which is long enough to be appropriate for a big or tall person. The stainless steel tension bolo back allows for ease in sliding the bolo up and down and adjusting securely for a comfortable fit.
This bolo has not been fitted with tips so you will have your choice of bullet casings (as seen on my other bolo ties), deer antler tips, or shotgun shells that I have made exclusively for my scrimshawed bolos.
So what would you like to see etched on this bolo? Whatever you want! Maybe a proud buck head, your favorite hunting dog, or even an African animal – an elephant perhaps?

Care for your Knife Bolo Tie:
I recommend you never wear a scrimshaw piece in swimming or the shower. Not likely for a bolo tie, I admit. Did that thought give you a little chuckle? But this next part is pertinent to the bolo tie – it is best not to leave genuine ivory pieces sitting in direct sunlight or exposed to intense heat, like that of a vehicle in the summer. Ivory is a natural material and deserves to be cherished. I use the most permanent inks available for my artwork and I have applied several layers of Renaissance wax to preserve the colors. Each Knife Bolo Tie comes ready to wrap in a gift box.
