    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?

What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."

    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.
