Out of stock


The silky luster of this mammoth tooth handle makes this Knife Bolo Tie stand out. You won’t find another string tie knife like it! The ancient mammoth molar is a variety of golden to brown hues have an almost chatoyant quality, like tiger’s eye quartz. This particular piece even has a blue to whitish vein of enamel running lengthwise thru it.

The bolo tie knife blade is stainless steel, with a smooth blade bevel without a sharp edge.  Thus it is not a functional knife and eliminates possible cutting accidents. The maker, Gary Smith, has his logo etched on the blade. 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.  The bolo tips are brass bullet casings and make the perfect finish to this most extraordinary tie.

Mammoth molars:

Mammoth molars from the last ice age (10,000-40,000 BP), like that used on this Knife Bolo Tie, have been stabilized and pressure treated for strength and durability. Woolly mammoth teeth grow in layers of three different materials- dentine, cementum and enamel. Because of these different layers the patterns also differ a lot depending on cutting direction. The material is uniquely beautiful due to this three-part layer structure. The mammoth molars are not petrified but do contain natural minerals and are harder to work than non-fossil material.

Mammoth ivory is legal to import and export and sell in most US states except for a few states, therefore I will not sell or ship this item to HI, NV, IL, CA, NY, NJ, NH, VT, or DC

To 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.
