there arre many great types of woods. or, perhaps elk antler, buffalo horn, or even boar tusk. as for woods, theres various figured maple, macasar [spelling] ebony would be distinct, coco bolo, but walnut is a classic for a reason, and a darn good one at that. if i get an saa clone i might go with elk antler, polished smppth, would be like ivory.
