They went out in the mail today. You should have them soon. I packed them a little different than usual. I've been having problems with the bubble wrap inside the package transferring the pattern to the finish of the grips. We are having 100 degree temps and who knows how hot it gets in those delivery trucks, but the heat is causing the pattern transfer. But like I said, I packaged them differently to avoid that. But if you see a probably, let me know and I will make it right.

It’s a shame to hide such beautiful work. But, alas no open carry.

I only use woods. I've never heard of Australian sheoak, but I will check and see if I can source some.

look under ''wood finder''for the sheoak, and pink ivory is a tree that is scacred to the zulu chiefs very pink in color rather beauriful.
