Not to mention there is already a bracelet (or two ?) in place. :shrug:

The handle appears to be uniformly rusted, so probably steel? The seller did not supply any pictures of the handle end.

There are plenty of fake scrimshaw teeth out there; maybe you can source a blank one with a little googling; then all you would need is the artisan.
