    If you're going to use Nutmeg you should get them done in the next 30 days. As of July 1st. Nutmeg will no longer ship to CA.

    Recently received some high relief carved work from them and blown away is an understatement. Absolutely amazing so as far as my experience I wouldn't hesitate for a moment to continue on with them and expecting the same quality but this is jmo.

    According to this article that just came out in Smithsonian.com, ALL interstate commercial trade in elephant ivory will be illegal as of July 6, 2016, unless the ivory is at least 100 years old. In order to see the details, you need to click on the links in the Smithsonian article, including links to various federal rules.

    Not exactly all trade. Here is the new rule, which states most items with less than 201 grams of Ivory are exempt, if imported prior to 1990.

    "It is our intent only to allow continued interstate and foreign commercial trade in products that contain a small amount of old ivory; items that we do not believe are contributing to elephant poaching or the illegal ivory trade. That group of products includes certain musical instruments but also includes, for example, household items such as baskets with ivory trim and teapots with ivory insulators,knives and guns with ivory grips..."

    "...the Service has had extensive consultation with those engaged in the legal ivory trade including representatives of professional musicians,musical instrument manufacturers, antiques dealers and collectors, museum curators, and ivory craftsmen. We received over one million comments in response to the proposed rule, the considerable majority of which expressed overwhelming support for stricter regulation of the commercial ivory market to help protect African elephants. We believe this rule strikes an appropriate balance..."

    The 200 gram exemption also includes the statement that "The item was manufactured or handcrafted before the effective date of this rule." That might exempt existing pistol grips, if the ivory was imported prior to 1990. But it looks like new pistol grips for interstate commerce cannot be made after July 6.

    The way I first read the 200 gram exemption, it was included only for ivory parts that are not removable. Perhaps it has changed but if not it would include knife handles and not gun stocks.

    Ordered a set from Ryan at Finer Grain, and asked him how long he would be selling. His response was as long as he could continue to get the quality Ivory he needs from his supplier.
