    Same guy called me today and said he had a few more in rough shape if I wanted to have a look. He wasn't kidding about rough shape. Wind chimes, the lot of them!

    But there was this one with... interesting... scales. I don't think they are bone, I see none of the pores that are usually in bone scales. Not plastic either. Still, I'm no expert and have very little experience with ivory, but they might be? I thought ivory scales were mostly pinned without collars, and this one has collars, so I don't know.

    The blade is junked but it's stamped "Telofit" on the show side and "Full Concave A. Whitt" on the B-side.

    Very well could be... I'm going to unpin it later and see what the inside surface looks like.

    The thing that threw me off was there's none of the pores I see in other bone scales. Just good clean pieces of bone here I think. Good enough! I'll find a nice blade to fit in there.
