    More nicely colored mammoth ivory scales


    ADVERTISEMENT
    Here are some more really nicely colored mammoth ivory scales. The moisture gauge is reading 8% so these are ready to go. It is best to let them acclimate to your climate before using, a month or two would be fine. I am happy to answer any questions about the stuff or working with it. It is guaranteed to be legal and naturally colored, happiness is guaranteed, if you find you can't use it when you get it in your hands, return it for your purchase price back, please do that within seven days. I take all the normal forms of payment, Paypal, checks, or credit cards over the phone. The prices shown will be plus shipping, I ship using USPS flat rate shipping where I can, I ship anywhere it is legal and charge only the actual shipping charges. You may PM me, email me or call me on the phone (though sometimes I have loud machines running and can't hear it).

    Mark - your blog certainly doesn't succumb to my google-fu... but beautiful ivory.

    Sorry, no Darrin it is not the painting, that is an old passion, it is very hard to make a living at painting, even harder than knife making. Thanks for the props. Talk to you later. Mark

    Here's a hint, it has to do with fishing. Thanks for guessing, keep trying.

    I was a fishing guide along with my big game guiding. But the part about the salmon slam is getting warm.

    Taxidermy... stuff and mount that fish.
    What is it that makes a complete stranger dive into an icy river to save
    a solid gold baby? Maybe we'll never know.

    Multiple guesses are perfectly fine. You are getting warmer, but I want details man, details.

    You are getting warmer, it will be the grand slam of Alaskan game fish. I am going to give it to you. I am going to try to catch all of Alaskas game fish species (25 in all) on an original fly pattern that I developed. Quite ambitious to be sure.
