Those are amazing. You might need another stainless 1911 for those. :-)Perhaps some of you have already heard of Raffir USA Wood ?!?.
They supply many, many makers of firearm grips, and knife handles. Their stuff is really unmatched, and I noticed recently that they also carry an assortment of Woolly Mammoth fossils.
Here's an example of a matched set of tusk blocks (pre-sized to make into grips/handles.
They developed a process where the wood products and fossils are placed in a vacuum, and then various resins are forced into them, to stabilize and harden them.
Anyway, as a yet undefined project I'm gong to try, I picked up a set of what they called Tusk & Tooth mammoth ivory. These pieces are 1/4" thick, and about 5" long.
They have to be cut with diamond saw blades, and I'm going to investigate a
(wet) Tile cutter, or similar.
Yesterday, I photographed them. (sorry for long'ish post !)
Heavy rain, lightning and thunder here. The pup isnt liking it much. He jumped up in the chair with me and growls everytime it thunders.
Happy Thursday Patience
