Description
This divot tool is made from the leg bone of a Dromedary camel. There are two types of camel, the Dromedary (with a single hump) and the Bactrian Camel (with a double hump). The slightly smaller Dromedary has a population of approximately 13 million, making up about 90% of the worlds' population.

Camels are native to the dry desert regions of Asia and Northern Africa and have a life expectancy of 30 - 50 years. Humans first domesticated them over 5,000 years ago and there are now no wild camels living in their native lands. Almost all are domesticated, with a population of about 15 million. However, there is a feral population of camels living in central Australia. This group of about 700,000 animals are descendants of a group that escaped in the late 19th century.

The bone is quite hard, having adapted to carrying an animal that can weigh in excess of 1,500 lbs. It takes a very nice polish and makes a very fine divot tool that should last the lifetime of its owner. If you're looking for a strong tool I would probably rate this one very near the top in my collection. It's just under 3" in length, 15/16" wide and 1/4" thick.
