I've attached a picture or 2 of an ivory handled stiletto I stumbled upon last week at The Classic Fly Fisherman, a shop near home. Bob Selb (the owner) always has this spot where he puts the who knows what when he is buying an estate, etc. I haven't cleaned it up yet...but thought it was too cool to pass on.

 

The other tool is a dental tool that is without doubt the VERY BEST single thing I've found for preening feathers. It is ergonomic perfection making it so easy to use. What I would like to do is get a second one...but I don't know the specific name/function of this thing. Can anyone be of any help with tat?

Cheers,

George

LOL...I know that...I'm looking for the specific name or type in order to be correct when searching online for another.

The mascara brush has been a long time part of my fly tying tools.

 

Yes that is an ivory handle on the bodkin...the only reason I brought it home!!
