The scrimshaw is inked with colored india ink and sealed with renaissance wax, which is used by museums for antique restoration. It also helps bring out the beauty of the artwork as well as in the cow bone. The knife is water resistant, but not waterproof.

The artwork was originally hand etched by Bill Feeney. He received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mathematics from Saint Francis College in Bidderford, Maine, In 1973 I accepted a teaching position at Westport High School where I met Robert Rayno, the art teacher. As part of the class curriculum, he taught a section on scrimshaw. I sat in on many of his classes and purchased the necessary tools and ivory to begin etching. Combining my natural artistic ability with the techniques learned from Mr. Rayno, the cornerstone of "Spouting Whale" was established.
Each knife is hand etched, and there will be some minor differences between each knife.
