It's not wood, but I'm impressed with this Paper Micarta Ivory color. Looks really close to real ivory. I was actually surprised when I held it up to my elephant ivory scales and saw how close they were.

The only nice grips I've got are once made by Sarge.

You need to get out more brother. Thank you though, I appreciate that.

Some very cool buffalo horn over bloodwood grips. The horn has a great pattern down in it that shows through. Very nice stuff!

Nah, I'll stick with your grips.

When my bobtailed Kimber is done, I'll be back to your site to find the perfect match!

Maybe you'll still have the buckeye burl, but I doubt it!

Here's a set I just finished last night. I have been wanting to make these for a long time, but just didn't have the time. POW/MIA has a special place in my heart, and I think this is not only a beautiful tribute to those who didn't come home, but also a reminder that they are still out there.

Sarge, I too have that same 1pow.jpgspot in my heart!

I salute your tribute and complement you on your skills used to complete the end result!

Picked up a very nice set of Sarge's Koa grips, they look great on my Kimber Custom II TLE/RL!
