Scrimshaw is an ancient art of mariners from whaling days.
Crafted by Linda Layden, a self-taught bladesmith who has worked professionally creating scrimshaw artwork for over 40 years. With a deep respect for history, Layden's influence is derived from American whalemen of the early 1800's who etched ivory during their long, monotonous voyages. Her traditional knives can be found in private collections, fine gift shops and galleries around the world.
