Additional Information: The Woolly Rhinoceros is an extinct species of Rhinoceros that was common throughout Europe and northern Asia during the Pleistocene which lasted from 2.5 million to 11,700 years ago. This animal became extinct because of several reasons including hunting, climate change, and diseases. The Woolly Rhinoceros coexisted with the Woolly Mammoth and both sometimes shared the same forage areas. The Woolly Rhinoceros used in the knife handles came from Siberia. Most of these fossils come from native people who collect them on river banks and from various digging sites. This particular piece used for the knife handle has lots of cracks/crevices for character. 

Box Elder is a fast growing tree that was often planted as a shade tree and for windbreaks. The wood is plain but sometimes Box Elder produces a burl in which the grain is radically deformed because of some stress or damage and makes small birdseye knots. This burl wood is highly figured. The Box Elder Burl I use in my knives comes from a storm-damaged tree that was part of the original trees planted during the Mormon migration to Utah. This particular piece has been dyed yellow to provide a nice contrast to the Fossil Woolly Rhinoceros Bone.
