All grips are exotic wood or rare material, all done by hand. These are not machined and are very unique.
 
The wood grips have a fractal wood burning, also known as litchenburg burning. Are grips are traditional cut, even if a photo may not show it, they do have clean percise cuts. If you want additional pictures, just let me know.
 
Include $5 for USPS Priority Mail shipping.
 
Money order or paypal accepted.
 
Walrus Ivory Grips - High polish, made from primary dentine. Very rare, often priced for over $700, if you can find them.

Do you know if the ivory would engrave with a fiber laser?

I am lucky enough to have a set of James's Walrus Ivory grips. They are fantastic. No kidding, they are outstanding. And you cannot buy them just anywhere- walrus ivory is very restricted. 

 

We also auctioned a set at our NRA dinner.

 

If it was me, I would be all over the walrus grips.  Outstanding workmanship and very rare.

Sweet. Wished I could get a pair of the Walrus Ivory grips made for my 1975 Stainless Ruger Old Army cap and ball pistol. Not sure how easy it would be to make since it attaches with a single screw through two ferrules. I found new factory replacements on Numrich's website. I also found the grip medallions on Ebay.
