    Truely beautiful. I shouldn't have looked because now I'm even more anxious to get my Incognito.

    Thanks for all the compliments!
    To answer some questions - No, i haven't seen any increase in th interest for stingray since Steve Irwin's passing. The two stingray holsters shown were actually ordered and made prior to his death.
    Price-wise a full-coverage stingray holster generally runs 3-4 times the price of the same holster in standard cowhide. The hide itself isn't real expensive wholesale. The price reflects the degree in difficulty in working in it, as Eric attested to in his post. Each bead is a calcium deposit, the same consistency as a tooth or fingernail. It is very difficult to cut, and hell to sew through.

    Could you make the grip inserts for a GP100 in stingray or something cool like that? Or just holsters? I saw the grips on that one and thought somehting exotic in my GP grips would be cool.

    Yep.....the amount of work that goes into them is more than a PITA!

    My 328 Sewing needles on my machine will easily punch through 2 sheets of .032" aluminum and the bone in my thumb..without missing a beat!

    But will snap if they center punch a pc of stringray.....now you guys really get the picture.

    Shoot well and god bless

    Mark, beautiful work ! I am an instant admirer. I've done some work with the exotics so I know what this is all about, and i'm IMPRESSED. I especially like the sting ray grips. This stuff will wreck a sewing machine needle pretty quick, so now i know what to do with my scraps ! I did up a pair of elephant grips for a 1911 recently and a holster to match and i thought it was cool until i saw your stingray,,, wow ! keep up the good work, jim
