Description
This divot tool is made from the horn of a Musk Ox (Ovibos moschatus). Musk Ox are native to the frozen Arctic living primarily in Greenland, Canada, Alaska, Ellesmere Island, Sweden, Norway and Siberia. They survive the frigid winter months by moving to higher ground where the constant winds help keep the snow down, minimizing the amount of time they need to dig. During this time they survive on their fat reserves supplemented with the roots, mosses and lichens they find under the snow. In the summer months they move to lower, wet ground where they feed on grasses. Musk Ox have lived in the Arctic for thousands of years, adapting to the harsh climate by growing a long coat of coarse "guard hairs" to shed snow and rain, and a denser undercoat of short hair for insulation. Both sexes have horns that curve downward along the side of the face and then turn upwards. On males the horns also cover the top of the head, forming what's called a "boss". Instead of a boss, females have white hair.

This tool is made from the boss part of the horn. The horn material is very interesting in having very distinct textures and colors at the different layers. The outer later is very rough, almost like striated tree bark. Below that is a cream/white layer that has an end grain very similar to bird'e eye patterns in wood. Seen in the same direction as the grain this second layer appears as white stripes against a cream/tan background. The third layer is cream/tan in color with random white streaks.

In making this tool I've tried to retain as much of the outer layer of horn as possible to give a nice contrast in color and texture. The tool is 3"in length and 1" in width. The cigar cradle is 1" long, 7/8" wide and 1/4" deep, just about the most generous cigar cradle I can make without the tool becoming too bulky. It will securely hold the largest of cigars. This is a very rare material that I have very limited access to and it is priced accordingly. Weight is 12.13 grams. A very robust tool.
