Anyone here like pearl-handled knives?

Just thought I’d start a thread to see if anyone else liked having pearl as a handle material. Also curious about any reasons why they don’t want it as a handle material too:)

pearl is such a pre-90s thing, haha. just my opinion, but i think the modern knife world moved away from pearl and other natural materials (wood, bone, etc.) because they can warp if the environment changes (temperature, humidity, etc.) and they are more costly to manufacture, compared to say, FRN or G-10. I never owned a mother of pearl knife, but I do want one in my collection, maybe in a traditional slip joint.

Beautiful but too costly for an edc. I don't believe you can put a pocket clip on pearl handle knives.

My favourite, of my 80 or so, is a real mother of Pearl handled, hand made Barlow made by Lee White of Taylor’s Eye Witness, an almost 200 year old company in Sheffield, England.

as a Gentleman's knife?? without a doubt...yes!! as a edc tool ..NO , it would take too much of a battering , it would also require a nice form of carry as a clip would look ugly, a nice tooled mini sheath might do it proud ?

I agree. I have another one in Ram’s horn that I do edc, as it’s both cheaper and more robust. The mop only comes out for very special occasions e.g. wedding & funerals, black tie events etc. They each have their own leather slip for these occasions. I’ve had custom ones made by Simon Davidson of DavidsonLeather.com
