SK Customs® Introduces Gods of Olympus-Ares to the 1911 Series Line

SK Customs®, the nation’s only series-driven, limited-edition custom firearms manufacturer, proudly presents “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 renowned Olympians,” said Simon Khiabani, owner and founder of SK Customs. 1911 collectors and enthusiasts can now boast a beautifully crafted firearm that represents some of the oldest histories in the world.”

To exalt some of Ares’s powers, SK Customs showcases his Spartan shield, spear, and helmet throughout the gun. The hilts are made of Kirinite® and feature the Greek key edge, illustrating Ares in battle armor alongside the god’s vulture and dog, symbolizing loyalty and protection.

“Using our highly reflective conversion technique, SK Customs brings to life an exposed fiery hue of steel and uses 24-karat gold to highlight Ares’ attributes in battle scenes,” said Khiabani.

Each collector of the Ares weapon 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 placed inside a black velvet coin box, labeled in silver with the “Gods of Olympus – Ares” logo.
