(I love the mind of a fantasy author…)
I visited the Maritime Museum in San Francisco and found this exhibit that featured items made out of ivory. I thought of making part of the king’s weapon ivory such as either the hilt or the pommel. However, even though ivory usually comes from whales, elephants, or rhinos, I am thinking that the ivory in the king’s weapon will originate from a dragon. Because of the significance of dragon ivory, this weapon will be seen as a symbol of power and authority. In general, this weapon is going to have an exotic look compared to other fantasy weapons.
