Description

Gator Jawbone Poly_0009_Red SnapperIn 2014 we rolled out something special for GenCon, something we’d been asked to make since the very first day Artisan Dice existed. It’s the 2nd most commonly asked for item on our customers’ wish lists. Bone Dice.

For those that aren’t aware, bone makes for horrible dice, it’s porous, oddly shaped, prone to chipping, and the larger pieces we need to make dice from are hollow and spongy in the middle thanks to that wonderful thing called marrow. So, for the longest time our standard answer was, “Nope sorry, we don’t make bone dice.”

As it would turn out all those issues are solved once you stabilize the bone and cast it in a urethane resin block. The colored holes you see are the resin filling in the teeth holes in the gator jawbone. The white parts are the actual gator jawbone. Yup, these dice aren’t just crated from any old bone, they’re made from an actual alligator jaw bone fresh from the swamps of Lousiana. Actually, they come from an alligator farm in Louisiana where we source gator jawbones from the largest of farm raised gators as it takes an 8ft gator to have a large enough jawbone to craft our dice from. Much like carnivorous cows, these gators are raised for meat and leather. If you haven’t tried it, fried alligator tail is really delicious.

    Fantastic dice, love the look, the feel, the box is incredible. Took a while to arrive but the gift to make up for the wait was well appreciated as well.
    They arrived and I immediately jumped on the website and started browsing more aha.

    Gorgeous dice! This is my 3rd order from Artisan Dice and they never disappoint! The dice is flawless and the reddish color is beautiful. So happy to be adding this d20 to my collection.
