Try to look unimportant. Your enemy might be low on ammo.

I went Friday afternoon. Picked up a few very small lockbacks from AG Russell and a set of elephant ivory grips for a 1911.

I don't know what you paid for the 1911 ivory grips, but just for general information purposes, you can pick up fine quality elephant ivory grips from Boone Trading Co. for $195 to $300. The $195 ones are the ones preferred by scrimshanders because they have less variation in hardness and background figure to interfere with the scrim process. They are very nice grips. Highly recommended. The owner knows what he's talking about.

If you want to see some of the end product go toRon Leubke's siteand click on scrimshaw gallery if partial nudity doesn't offend you. All the 1911 grips pictured are mine and all the original ivory grips came from Boone's.

When considering US based operations of guides/outfitters, check and see if they are NRA members. If not, why support someone who doesn't support us? Consider spending your money elsewhere.

NEVER, EVER book a hunt with BLAIR WORLDWIDE HUNTING or JEFF BLAIR.

I have come to understand that in hunting, the goal is not the goal but the process.

I'll not post the pic just the link but I assume these are yours. All I can say is WOW! Eeker

This looks almost like a photo, beautiful. Is this all done by hand?

Yes, those are mine as are the other 3 1911 grips on that page.

They are all done by hand, but I believe he first transfers or outlines the image on the ivory somehow and then does the actual scrim. Just for an example, he had well over 60 hours work in the set you linked. He is quite talented, especially with feminine forms, and is becoming well known with related longer waiting times, but nothing like custom gun makers, we're talking a few weeks or a couple of months last time I checked.

I really like scrim and have a few pieces, but I also have more expensive tastes and I can't afford them all.

If this works, here is one side of a small knife I just bought (not in my possession yet) scrimmed by a Japanese artist, Yokihiro Nasu. I wasn't familiar with him, but he obviously does good work. This is on ivory micarta, not as classic as real ivory, but then again, it won't crack or split.


Since that worked, here is the other side:
