    CITES applies to ivory products after 1947 before that it's OK be it Mammoth or Pachyderm.

    Got one given a while ago and was aghast at being given something that I thought was extremely expensive and rare............so I enquired..........and apparently it isnt! (relatively speaking). Seemingly whilst exploring for oil in Russian Siberia they are pulling Wooly Mammoth out of the permafrost right left and centre! (still treasure my knife though)
