Additional Information: Fossil Coral is an organic gem material that has been used for ornamental purposes for several thousand years.  Fossil coral occurs naturally in a broad range of attractive colors. However, the supply of these fossil colored coral has been greatly reduced due to various reasons. This reduction in the supply of naturally colored fossil coral has led to the practice of dyeing pale-colored and white coral into various colors. Commonly, the white and light colored fossil coral is bleached prior to the dyeing process so that better penetration and more homogeneous coloration may be achieved. Additionally, polymer impregnation may be used to enhance the appearance of fossil coral and give it a smoother surface, which makes it more useful for many applications like using it for knife handles. A large portion, as high as 9095%, of the fossil coral entering the market is color-enhanced. This particular piece of fossil coral I used for the handles has been dyed light green and has nice striations and ribbings.

The Buffalo Horn I use in my knives is actually from domesticated water buffalo from Southeast Asia. There are at least 130 million domesticated water buffalo and more people depend on them than on any other domesticated animal. The Buffalo Horn I used in this knife has a nice polished black color and provides a nice contrast to the Fossil Green Coral.
