I been looking for some good grips to get close to ivory. Since November I have went through 2 grip makes that were total jokes. I finally came across mike with MDGrips. Service and grips were amazing and I highly recommend him. As far as giraffe, it feels and looks great. I think it’s more like mammoth ivory I have owned instead of elephant but again I think it’s best product I have seen that’s not ivory. The python has real elephant for comparison. I heard giraffe is getting ready to be put on protective status so if you like it, might order soon.
