    If you guys havent checked out this place for some awesome Prehistoric Knife making materials you should. Owners name is Scott, super nice guy, went out lf his way to find me the perfect peice of mammoth tooth for my current WIP. Great prices and hes located on Kitchner Ontario. He offers a wide range of stabalized mammoth tooth and ivory for all your knife making needs. Thought id share my experience here with you guys. Tell him Jason Moore refered you and spread the word!

    Not true in fact I find his work to be substandard almost to the point of incompetent. Handles fall apart with the slightest drop. Avoid at all cost seriously you will get burned.

    @Unhappycamper this is an old thread you’ve found to vent your grievance. Was it Mammoth tooth you purchased?

    If so, I am not exactly sure what you were expecting making a handle from such a brittle material. It’s coveted for it’s uniqueness, it’s history, it’s colour schemes and it’s finish...polished up this stuff is amazing. But I have never ever seen a single declaration that it is as tough or as durable as G10, Micarta or Carbon-Fibre.

    Sorry you had a bad experience man. I am not even a customer of Scott, but buyer beware, know what you are buying.

    @Unhappycamper Im sorry to hear you had a bad experience. Ive bought alot of mammoth from him and yes at times mammoth tooth tends to crack. What do you expect though? The material is 10,000 years old and even though stabalized its a brittle material to work with. And honestly if your handles fall apart maybe its your technique that needs improvement. Also since I posted this Scott has been double stabalizing his materials. So if you got some of his earlier stuff this could be why you had an issue. Since you havent shown with pictures or explained exactly what happened I can only guess.

    ,First off thank you for allowing me to become a member here I greatly apreciate it and will let other s know about this great page ------ SO NOW thanks for the heads up guys for letting me know about this situation and this thread. whos this guy hiding in the shadows with no name or avatar defaming my name with no proof , ide like him to contact me first to see if he was really ever a member and bought any of my mammoth and second to see if just a scammer looking for free product as everyone knows if theres an issue with my mammoth I make it right with that person , so this leads me to honestly believe hes another seller looking to defame my name so he can sell his easier ,I could be wrong could be a newer guy who bought some and dropped a scale on a cement floor and it cracked? but I have an easy way to find out I never erase any conversations with members so if I was contacted I can find out easy enough and see what the conversation was and how it was left and if what resolution was come up with ,indeed no matter what you do you will never please 100% of people there are just some who no matter what go through life complaining to everyone about everything we all know at least one guy like this and over the thousands of members I have and tens of thousands of shipments I'm bound to get one nut job its just a fact , all you makers have had at lest one customer that no matter what you said or did you couldent please that person and if you haven't yet ? you will give it time ,, so I'm here to defend my great name that ive worked very hard top get , I have over 50 high recommendations on my page right now that anyone can see if they want and thats just what ive kept I cant keep them all as theres only so much room on a Facebook page for my mammoth adds and FB is my main focus , ide like to thank all the members who have let me know this was going on and that I can be give a chance to redeem myself here ,, so (Mr. unhappy camper , I invite you to show me your real name so I can see what in the heck your talking about ) ,lol,lol seriously how long ago did I boot you from my page for being a disruption to other members ? because we both know this is just your attempt at some pay back as you are upset you can no longer purchace the best mammoth on the market today !

    Scott there is a private message function within Canadian Knifemaker, and I suggest you try that.

    That aside I was in fact attempting to give a logical and reasonable response to unhappycampers’ grievance and I was expecting it to go no further. What I definitely did not want was to have our forum become host to a slanging match...it’s just not what we are about here.

    Please try and work this out privately. Both parties cooperation in this will be appreciated by the other members I am sure.

    Thanks for joining by the way and hope you can tell other Canadian makers about this site.


    Cheers,

    Griff

    griff thats exactly what ive done , and im not pm it I want to show this to be false to all who now think theres an issue with my mammoth this cant be done if hidden , he came in open forum and slung mud I believe I have the right to defend myself no ? if not deleat his comment so my name is not continually being defamed and my response to it and problem solved and im quite happy with that but really what im after is to find out who it is , if I have an un happy customer ide like to rectify that issue , customer satisfaction is paramount at the house of mammoth everyone who knows me knows this ,so to see this stinks of a competitor

    You defending yourself is cool with me man. That wasn’t what I was saying. I was just recommended using the pm to find out who this person is, as this is a neutral ground, and this is where the grievance was aired. I was just asking that it end with your reply and not go further in what could possible turn out to be a trolling thread.

    hey tim ive actually closed things down temp until covid-19 is over as it was effecting my shipping times and although 99% of my customers understood it was out of my control that 1% dissatisfaction was enough for me to take this step ,this is how serious I am about having a happy customer ,with that said im not sure how to answer your question , an idea could be when you require some you could let me know via an email what you were after and I could reply with pics -size-price - I am on Instagram but I do need a new smart phone at the moment to get it up and going properly right now my very old blackberry is all im using so posting blurry pics isn't something I want to do ,lol ,for payment I do 2 things only #1 is pay pal and #2 is cash in the mail but I really dont like this method and have only done twice for a guy who refused to work with pp for his personal reasons or you could just make a simple f-book page so you could access my page ,you wouldent need to continue to post things or surf it just use to view the mammoth when in need , and messenger is a fast way to communicate as well , thanks for your interest sir
