5.0 out of 5 stars Going to the next level... 11 July 2010
By Mark Szymanski - Published on Amazon.com
Jim picks right up where he left off in his first book, Scrimshaw Techniques. More info on ivory and how to care for it, restore it, re-inking it, determining the difference between real and fakes, it is just plain educational. And the chapters on using power tools just keep on providing information that I have not found anywhere else. Excellent follow-up and another must-have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scrimshaw Techniques 13 Oct 2008
By Rodney R. Lacey - Published on Amazon.com
Jim has put together a great book for new and old scrimers, I thought i knew it all but i've picked up a few usable tips. he starts from the begining talking about the equipment used then the diferent ivory and where to get it, then in detail how to scrimshaw. He is easy to follow and the pictures help a lot. Jim knows his stuff. the gallery is great, lots of colour picks. A must for all scrimers and collectors. This book will become a collectors item.

5.0 out of 5 stars well worth owning 30 May 2012
By Gretchen Cardoso - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book (and the first book by the same author) for source information on beginning my own scrimshaw. I am quite satisfied with it and have happily begun my own work on bone and antler. I would recommend this to anyone who has an interest in scrimshaw. And if you start doing your own, invest in some renaissance wax, also sold on Amazon.

A lot of great info in this book; although, some of it is a repeat of Stevens first book. But still a great book. I have both and would get them both again.
