One of the more interesting specialty stores on Maui is Lahaina Scrimshaw.
Located on the famous Front Street in the west Maui town of Lahaina, Lahaina Scrimshaw has been in business since 1978. Lahaina has always been associated with whaling, and scrimshaw has always been a big part of the history of Hawaii and whaling ships from all over the world.
Lahaina Scrimshaw has one of the largest selections of ivories, with fossilized walrus and wooly mammoth being the most used ivory for the 20 scrimshaw artists residing in Hawaii. There’s a large selection of knives, money clips, guitar picks, and other gift items made of fossilized walrus.
Visiting Lahaina Town? Make sure to stop by Lahaina Scrimshaw and see a part of Hawaiian history on one-of-a-kind ivory pieces.
Lahaina Scrimshaw – 845 Front Street – Lahaina, HI 96761 (808) 661-8820
Open 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day.
