"I have a simple philosophy. Fill what's empty, empty what's full, and scratch where it itches."
Alice Roosevelt Longfellow

Every sailor longs for a Myerchin! The finest, toughest, safest and most durable of all rigging knives available for sailors the world over. Guaranteed for life - You will love this knife! Myerchins are called "The BMWs of Sailor's Knives!"

The blade is three-quarter-serrated, hollow ground for sharpness, and has the Myerchin whale engraved.

All 440 stainless steel construction with a thong hole for a tether. Your Myerchin can always be trusted to be there and ready when you need it with only a minimum of care.

The blade is 4 inches long, and the separate marlinspike is 7 inches in length. This sturdy knife is 8 inches overall. This superb knife and marlinspike set even comes with its own Myerchin nylon belt sheath or soft zippered long-term storage case.

Knife shown with Peach Crystalline Fossil Walrus Ivory.

This is the perfect presentation set, or nautical gift! For those who like the classic look of pins on each side, we add 2 classy mosaic pins.

Choose your favorite type and color of fossil ivory! Personalize this set by having us etch a ship, and your name, initials, or the date on the Fossil Ivory scales at no charge. As an option, we will scrimshaw an etching of a ship of your choice, your own boat (sail or power), or your favorite scene on one side - Just email or snailmail us a picture.

We offer the option of either a red, black or maroon nylon liner between the ivory and the frame - looks really spiffy!

Below are the available colors of our fossil ivories. Our high quality fossilized ivories have been reclaimed from the ground after sharing the earth for up to 30 millennia! Even after all this time, Fossil Ivory remains warm and sensuous organic ivory; it is not petrified. It has developed its beautiful colors by taking up minerals from the earth and these colors are impossible to match in any contemporary ivories by modern processes.
