What is Scrimshaw?

The art of scrimshaw dates back to whaling days over 200 years ago. The intricate hand carvings and engravings done by American whalemen are accepted as America's most important folk arts. Scrimshaw refers to the carvings or engravings of assorted bone and ivories.

The art of scrimshaw developed as months at sea stretched into years. Men's idle hours were occupied by etching discarded whale teeth and bone with scenes of the voyage and pictures found in books. With the disappearance of whaling, scrimshaw also almost disappeared.

This nearly forgotten art is still being kept alive by us in the same manner of the gone by days of whaling to create treasures of today and heirlooms of tomorrow
