Sailors on whaling ships in the 18th century were usually at sea for a year or more. Many developed hobbies and practiced crafts to pass the long hour, often making presents for sweethearts and family at home. One of the most iconic “souvenirs” from these arduous voyages is scrimshaw, the name given to intricate etchings on whale teeth and bone, as well as walrus tusks. The etchings were darkened with soot or tobacco to highlight the design.


This handsome replica “whale tooth” walking stick is typical of the style and features a whaling scene on one side and a fanciful fish on the other. It’s inspired by scrimshaw found in England’s Hull Maritime Museum, which has the largest collection of scrimshaw in Europe. Handcrafted by a company that has been a purveyor of gentlemen’s accessories since 1939.


Handcrafted in England. Poly resin and limestone “whale tooth” handle; black-stained maple-wood; shaft nickel sleeve; rubber ring tip. 36"L; 5"L handle.

Each year at the end of winter, Scottish red deer stags shed their impressive antlers to begin growing them anew in the spring. Highlanders traditionally collected them to use as handles for knives and walking sticks. A polished piece of red deer antler, collected in the Scottish Highlands, forms the handle of our walking stick. The shaft is made of chestnut, with a walnut cap. Red deer are indigenous in Scotland, with depictions found as far back as sixth-century stone carvings by the medieval Picts.

This contemporary scrimshaw box is made of water buffalo bone and reproduces a design that a sailor may have made for his sweetheart at home.

Along the way, these massive beasts battle 30-feet-long giant squids, and each other, to sustain their ways of life.
