    Going out on a limb here but any of you guys up in Alaska know anything about the value of ivory handled steak knife set and carving set that have scrimshaw work done by Wilbur Walluk?

    I got these from an uncle who was stationed in Alaska back in the 50's. I can't find much on them and figured duck hunters know everything:tu

    Even if you could put me in contact with someone who knows what I have I would appreciate it. The scenes are pretty awesome on them with whale hunters, seal hunters, and other wildlife art work. They are unused and in the original boxes with some pamphlets in there. One is a bio of Wilbur Walluk "Eskimo Artist" and the other is Traditioanl Cutlery Genuine Ivory Handles care instructions.

    Thanks in advance guys!:tu
