"I received my package today, and I must say, I am so very pleased! Your work is so admirable, I am having difficulty transforming my feelings into words. My family and I will treasure these pieces for generations." MT
Since 1968, personalized scrimshaw jewelry, knives, and display pieces - using only fossil Ivories. WE USE NO ELEPHANT IVORY!
It takes a lot of work to stay 200 years behind the times! Each piece is exquisitely etched by hand (no machine etching) and personalized for you in our studio by our only scrimshander M. M. Cohen, who has been producing museum-quality scrimshaw since 1968. (and check out our low prices!) Each piece is handmade in our studio and signed. Marvin is widely recognized as one of America's leading scrimshanders, as well as a creative designer specializing in custom and semi-custom knifemaking, jewelry wearables and objects that illustrate traditional Arctic region Native American tales and myths, reinterpret ancient shamanistic images, and translate the spiritual aspects of earth, water and sky into meaningful and personal contemporary wearables. His wearable pieces combine strong images with powerful mythology; his etchings reflect authentic traditional nautica and eloquent portraiture.
