Great looking revolver! Love the blue with Ivory...................
I don't think you'll find real ivory with lines like that. That looks more like a laminated part like wood grips that are made that way.I can't for the life of me know how they make those schrager lines. Every set I make from Dave's guitar parts has them. I do have a complete blued Single Action(Uberti) that looks like my original 1905 Colt, which has lost it's bluing over the past century.
I don't see why it would be a problem so long as the test was performed on the back of the grips where the mark couldn't be seen.I’ve googled how to know if it’s real ivory or not and several of the posts (not this forum) have said DO NOT use the hot needle method. I forget why but since then I’ve shied away from this test.

Looks like the "American Ivory" that Boone Trading Company offers too.
