Large size pick blanks of ancient mammoth ivory. $ 8.99 per blank.
These pick blanks are for large format picks that many folks like. Cut to approximately .100" thickness (2.5 mm).
VERY IMPORTANT : These are pick blanks and are usually cut from bark areas of the tusk for best color and grain effects as well as for strength. They may taper and may be mildly pick shaped. Do not buy these if you are making a chess board or some other project as these are cut to make pick blanks. We are experiencing folks buying these with other projects in mind and then complaining they are not suited to their project. Each of these will make a large oversize guitar pick but, again, they may taper (most do not) and may be heart or pick shaped to a small degree and most of them will likely be cut to include the bark area where one finds the color, grain and strength often sought after for picks.
Folks finish these with very basic tools. While some folks shape them with files and sand them, other folks make a finished pick with just sandpaper! After final sanding they can be brought up to the right degree of sheen you like with any good paste wax, bees wax or furniture wax and a good hand buffing with T shirt material.
The other photos here show finished picks to give you an idea as to what these can become. This offering is for a blank - not a finished pick.
See our " Material Working Tips " page for info on how to work this material.
These have proven to be a lot of fun for folks to make and they are great little gifts for fellow guitar enthusiasts as well.
