Default How about a "nice grips" thread?

I have hundreds of pics of beautiful wood and other types of grips to share, but would also love to see YOUR pics of grips, so why not start a thread for that purpose? This is open as far as I'm concerned, so wood, metal, horn, Ivory, whatever, post 'em up for all of us to enjoy!

Just to get things rolling, here's a set of Afzelia Xylay bobtail grips with genuine Mammoth tooth slabs inset into the wood. They're shown on an Ed Brown Kobra Carry and I think the combination is outstanding! How often do you get to hold 50,000 years of history in your hands?

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

When I finally get my hands on my first 1911 (hopefully in the next ten days or so) I'm going to order some damascus steel grips from my favourite bladesmith, I've steel got to choose the pattern, it will be either a firestorm, turkish ribbon or feather. Something similar to this (although his work is MUCH better, since damascus is his bread and butter):

I'm also going to get some nice rosewood or walnut checkered grips. Half the fun of a new gun is dressing her up.

If Sarge doesn't, here's a couple choices from Eagle Grips CRE Loaded 6 - Eagle Grips Inc.


Ivory & American Elk. They also have several wood choices and a very cool Buffalo Horn.

Here's my contribution for the day. Gorgeously loud spalted Maple. These had to be professionally stabilized before I worked them. Before they were way too soft for much of anything, but stabilized they are a very solid and uber beautiful display of nature. Wow.
Enjoy,
Sarge
