Why would we do this?
We want you to try your hand at this vanishing art form. It’s a great way to get away from it all without leaving the comfort of your home, and can be a wonderful and even profitable hobby, but if you find you don’t have the knack, time or patience for scrimshaw, we appreciate you taking action and trying this truly American art.

What do we do with the returned kits? We will use unused materials ourselves to create scrimshaw and sand down and reuse any of the pieces already scrimmed ourselves.
