Scrimshaw Tools

From Warhammer 40k - Lexicanum

The Scrimshaw Tools are tools used by the Imperial Fists to inscribe the bones of their fallen kin, into Ossific Relics.[1]

It is said that as an Imperial Fist grows older and sees more of his Battle-Brothers fall in combat, his urge to master the practice of scrimshawing the bones of his fallen kin becomes irresistible. Often, this devotional act serves to belay any sense of failure the Battle-Brother may feel for his own part in the death, whether real or imagined, and in some cases is an act of penance imposed by the Chapter Chaplains or by the Imperial Fist himself.[1]
