Hippo Ivory Peg Tusk 04
Ivory hippo peg tusks are excellent for knife or cane handles, carving or scrimshaw. With short hollows, no enamel or a very narrow strip at top and are not prone to cracking. Some hippo tusks have small natural imperfections, we will try to show then in our photos when possible.
This beautifully shaped tusk is approximately 5/8" by 15/16" diameter by 5-1/2" long, measured around outside curve. The hollow depth is shown marked with a pencil line. There is a small chip on the tip end, visible in photo.
