Description
This divot tool is made from the leg bone of a giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis). The species name of 'camelopardalis' derives from the early Romans who named it from a combination of Camel and Leopard.

Weighing in at upwards of 3,000 lbs and a height of 16-18 feet the leg bones of a giraffe undergo tremendous leverage stress and have developed accordingly, making it arguably the hardest, densest bone you can find. I don't know how it rates on the Moh scale of hardness, but from working with it I know it's harder than Warthog Tusk and perhaps equal to Hippo Tusk. In an unofficial "clink" test, it sounds with a relatively high pitch, not unlike glass or porcelain, which allows it to take an exceptional, glass-like polish.

This particular tool is made from giraffe bone that has been dyed under high heat in a vacuum, a process which creates unpredictable and spectacular patterns. The dyed bone is often used in the making of custom knife handles. Dimensions are approximately 2-3/4" long and 3/4" wide. Weight is 5.72 grams.

This tool has been designed to be used with a pushing motion as opposed to a lifting motion. Research performed at Kansas State University has shown that repairing pitch marks using a pushing motion is much kinder to the sod's root system, enabling greens to heal faster and is recommended by the Golf Course Superintendents Association.
