    Question I Wonder If I Should Risk This?

    Here is a company that will "fine line" laser engrave any line art design on Faux Ivory or wood grips or Aluminum grips or whatever material grips.

    I wonder if I should risk having them try it on some natural Ivory grips?

    I do have a design idea in mind....not one of their "stock" designs.

    Is there a way to get some feedback from prior customers before entrusting your natural ivory grips?

    Judging by most laser engraving these days QK - I'd reckon it'd be pretty reliable.

    Only critical factor IMO would be the quality of artwork you supply and the way that is (effectively) translated into the engraving. I have seen many examples of real great laser engraving - seems pretty fool proof.

    Good idea RR - yes Larry's trophy business does I am sure include laser stuff. Had not even occurred to me.

    Can you give them a "scrap" piece of ivory (if such a thing exists) to give them a "test", or is the cost prohibitive?

    Rock & Glock read my mind.
    I'm going to send them a slab of scrap Ivory along with my grips & have them "burn" that one first. If it is OK then I'll just have them go right ahed & do my grips...naturally, absolving them of any responsibility.
