SK Customs has introduced Ares, the third creation in the Gods of Olympus engraver series. This production of 200 custom model Smith & Wesson Full Size 1911 pistols cambered in .45 ACP embodies SK Customs’ talent in producing one-of-a-kind engraved firearms.

“Ares, known as the Greek god of war and courage, is one of the most prominent and recognized Olympians,” said Simon Khiabani, owner and founder of SK Customs. 1911 collectors and enthusiasts can now boast a beautifully designed firearm representing some of the oldest stories in the world.”

To exalt some of Ares’ powers, SK Customs showcases his shield, spear and Spartan helmet throughout the pistol. The grips are made of Kirinite and feature the Greek Key border, illustrating Ares in battle armor along with the god’s vulture and dog, symbolizing loyalty and protection.                   

“Using our highly reflective conversion technique, SK Customs brings to life a fiery tone exposed from the steel and uses 24k gold to highlight the attributes of Ares in scenes of battle,” said Khiabani.

Each collector of the Ares gun will receive a commemorative silver coin that features the mark of the Bank of Greece in Athens and the year of production. The coin reveals a profile of the goddess Athena on one side and a depiction of Ares charging into battle on the other. Each coin comes in a protective case set inside a black velvet coin box, labeled in silver with the “Gods of Olympus - Ares” logo.
