SK Customs®, the Nation’s only series driven, limited edition manufacturer of custom firearms, is bringing the history of ancient Egypt alive through its launch of a brand-new series, the Gods of Egypt. Debuting with the Anubis, this limited-edition production of only 200 custom Smith & Wesson 1911 Engravers Seriesrepresents one of the world’s oldest civilizations.
Thousands of years ago, hungry jackals would dig up shallow desert graves in ancient Egypt. To the Egyptians, this was a fate worse than death itself. As the god of cemeteries, embalming and the protection of graves, Anubis played an important role in the journey to the afterlife. The jackal-headed deity resided over the care of the dead and loved ones of the Egyptians.
“The Anubis is nothing short of a work of art, depicting the fascinating history and culture of the ancient Egyptians,” said Simon Khiabani, owner and founder of SK Customs. “We’re in the business of crafting one-of-a-kind collectibles accentuating historical events, influential leaders, rituals, cultures and more. The Anubis is the perfect gun to commence the Gods of Egypt series.”
The S&W 1911 is chambered in 45ACP. Each side of the firearm features Egyptian hieroglyphics working towards the muzzle. The right side illustrates Anubis engraved in 24k gold, while the left side depicts Anubis performing mummification of the deceased. The rear panels symbolize key Egyptian concepts, truth and justice, with a scale weighing a heart against a feather. The top of the slide is engraved with the hieroglyphic Ankh symbol, meaning “life.”
A Uniquely Custom 24k gold pyramid decorates the front sight, while the serrations are deeply etched with a lotus flower representing creation and rebirth. Each grip panel is designed to represent Anubis and the rich history of the ancient Egyptians.
