    ALL SOLD — Fossil Walrus Oosik
    This is my swan song guys. This is my last collection of stuff to offer up for sale here...and the hardest to let go of (no pun intended). Nice walrus oosik is getting harder to find and more costly to get as the years roll by. It may be a loooong time before a chance like this comes up again.

    Great! The leather is actually walrus. I went through a phase of tracking down old suitcases and doctor's bags made with walrus leather. Had a plan to use it for inlays in sheaths for knives handled with oosic.
