Abalone

Abalone (from Spanish Abulón) is a rare shell found along the pacific coast of North America. There is a dwindling supply of shells large enough to create the scales we occasionally use in our knives, as these shells must exceed 7.5" in diameter. Most abalone trinkets are made from juvenile shells — these will not yield usable material for William Henry. A beautiful material when we can get it — all our pieces are cut from 'old stock' of harvested shells.
