    I suggest you look on line to see what they are selling for.

    To get your best value, i do believe that you will need to find an artisan who will have the equipment to make items out of them.

    Post your pictures to start with...

    Your tusks with a ruler showing length would be great...

    are the tusks trimmed to remove the nerve root base or is that part of the total length.

    What is the circumference of each tusk?

    Hi there,

    I'm sure if you are based outside of Africa you should find some buyer in your area if you google around for some artisans and knife makers etc.... However if you are based in Africa nobody would buy them off you and they will be probably be more worth to you in a sentimental way of value.. Take your time check around you may get some dollars for them if you find the right person there you will be surprised who needs those ! cheers Owen
